The Boston Globe keeps hammering at the Cognos scandals

Highlight of the latest article:

Also working on Cognos’s behalf during this period was lobbyist Richard McDonough, another close friend of DiMasi’s, who was paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to help the company secure state work. He failed to report more than $300,000 in lobbying fees until a Globe story earlier this month detailed his extent of his relationship with Cognos.

    I am pleased to see that the State is recinding thier order. As the Government Manger for LogiXML, I would like to offer the use of the recently awarded BI Tools contract by the Commonwealth of VA (CoVA). As a result of an RFP and 12 competitive respopnses, and a thorough technical, demonstartion and corporate qualifications review, CoVA awarded the contract to LogiXML, Inc. LogiXML products were found to meet all technical requirements and the savings to the State were substantial, cost were about .25 of nearest competitor.
    I would be happy to respond to a new requirement or to arrange for a product demo to MA or any other interested state.
