SA considering terminatation of $11,000 Web site contract

The Hatchet has learned that SA officials are consdering ways to opt out of an $11,000 contract signed with Web site development company SwapSwop.com who was hired to build the campaign promised Colonial Trader online trading site. The company gave the SA an incomplete project two weeks ago after more than four months of delays.

Senior members of SA President Audai Shakour’s administration said they are consdering alternative options for the Web site’s completion including terminating the contract they signed with the company in June.

SwapSwop officials said the delays in the Web site were caused by a 33 day delay of initial payment and subsequent delays of payments. The CFO of the company also said SA officials have been unresponsive to requests for communication about the Web site.

SA Officials may consider terminating the contract because the development company has not honored their contract. While the site calls for a five feature Web site, only one of the features is functional as of now. Developers said they hope to complete the site by next week, but some SA officials said it is too little too late.
