No, the overhaul of the website was not part of the SAC budget.
Our budget was:
Server replacement of osgeo3 ~$6,000
Maintenance & Service contracts ~$9,000

That could include the setup of software necessary for new web 
infrastructure, but the paying of an outside vendor to actually make the 
new site I assumed would be in the Marketing (or whoever took over webcom).

Yes, we will ask SAC for someone to sit on the EOI/RFQ. Who is in charge 
of that so I can make the connection, or can you share an email with SAC 
asking for the volunteer?
