Website Design & Development RFP

 

QUESTIONS:

  • We notice you are on WordPress currently. Are you looking to remain with that CMS or migrate to another platform?

We’d like to migrate to another platform with additional features.

  • Are there specific functionality issues or editing (editor) issues with the current CMS

We are interested in automating as many things as possible.  We’d also like my ability to engage with our citizens easier.

  • Do you have a separate Public Records Request form? Would that be of interest?

We have a PDF form that we use. As a smaller city, we do not currently warrant anything more for that process at this time.

  • Do you have a budget in mind for this project?

We anticipate a project of this nature ranging between $25- $35k.

  • Is there a preferred launch date for the site? If so, is there flexibility if needed?

We hope to have the new site up and running by July 2021.  We do not have a set date, but we hope to have the site implemented as soon as possible.

  • Will this be a low-bid award?

This is not a low-bid award.

 


SMALL WORKS ROSTER

MRSC established the Small Works database as a means of soliciting and notifying and contactors about opportunities to respond to quotes and bids.

To be considered for acceptance to the Small Works Roster, an application must be completed and submitted to MRSC. Acceptance to the roster does not guarantee work with any member agency.
