Looking at the PDF regarding having an open source CMS in 2006 was very interesting.
By 2009 open source technology and the inherent benefits were a credible and viable option. That was not the case in 2006 when the GLA received only one proposal to build on an open-source CMS out of hundreds.
It's not hard to believe that Plone in that era was a better system overall than the one they signed up for (see the timeline in the PDF... ...oh my!). The failure was they were looking for software plus professional services as a package and probably put out a request for proposals.
