No Contest

OK, we're not stupid enough to hire outside vendors or consultants to work on our website. We can screw it up just fine ourselves, thank you very much.

However, Kevin Miller from a sister CSU campus (which will remain unnamed, though a simple Google search will... well, never mind), apparently was, because he submitted these actual vendor quotes as part of the TFRL cartoon idea contest.

Kevin's quotes were so good, in fact, that he's the winner of the TFRL cartoon idea contest!! Kevin will receive a special one of a kind TFRL t-shirt! W00t!

Congrats to Kevin!! (Please allow to 6-8 weeks for your t-shirt to arrive. By then, you should have forgotten all about it, so when it never comes, it won't be a problem.)

In related news, I understand that there will soon be an opening in Web development somewhere in the CSU system, so please be sure to apply!

Nah, Kevin's a keeper. And the best thing about that RFQ process was the bids that rose to the top weren't boilerplate and were written to us, not for us. We also made it very clear in our document what we wanted, which many vendors appreciated. It also helps that it's a redesign using Drupal templates. Open source, baby!
