2010...errrr 9.

I keep harping on this 6.3 million dollar addendum to Ciber's contract because we still don't have an answer as to what the fuck it was for.

An astute anon pointed out an interesting observation on the contract:

You may want to go back and look at that contract for Ciber's recent $6M. If you look at the date the original was 12/31/2010, that is scratched out and initialed by Fred Wild (city attorney)and penciled in is 12/31/2009. I think Nagin is just paying off his buddies. Also Ciber has told its IT staff that 12/31/2009 is their last day.

So I went back and looked at it and he is indeed correct:

Notice the strike? Simple accident?

On a possibly unrelated note, I was browsing back through the TP archives of the civil case and ran across this:

Plaintiffs reach deal with Ciber

Hmmmmmmmmmmm..........hmmmmmmmm..........AAAAAAAhmmmmmmmmmm...........

I wonder how much that settlement was for?

Stupid question: why don't the signatories to this and all city contracts have to sign AND date them? I've had to do that on every single contract I've ever signed.

I'll start it off.

I'm guessing the amount was 5.3 million.

It is frustrating to see this kind of thing going on even after they have been caught out in so much.

Wasn't Nagin dismissed from the lawsuit shortly thereafter as well?
