The Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics is modernizing it computer-assisted data entry system -- and the U.S. Census Bureau of the U.S. Dept. of Commerce is paying for it. The Bureau on Sept. 7 announced via Solicitation #51-SO-BC-11-00082 that it intends to award a noncompetitive contract to the Greenbelt, Md.-based Jmat Systems, LLC, to support the project. It says the sole-source contract is justified because the company "is the only known source with the knowledge and experience needed to provide additional in-country deployment, setup, configuration, and disaster recovery services" for the Bangladeshi endeavor. The Bureau, however, did not offer justification as to why U.S. taxpayers are paying for it.
The US Federal Government, whose books are so fouled up they cannot be audited, is going to teach Bangladeshis how to do it. As if they don’t have enough problems already.
