Creating Drupal site for Cultural Center
This project involves creating a Drupal-backed website for a cultural center. The website includes a calendar and list of events. Some events will be input by the editors of the site, while others will be input from two XML feeds.
The site also includes a list of organizations that display on a Google Map, embedded into one of the pages. Organizations will be able to sign up to become listed on the site, inputing a credit card for payment. (Payments are processed via Authorize.net's API.)
The site employs a responsive theme. The attached wireframes show each template at 3 different widths.
For this project, we will provide the following:
- Design mockups
- Graphics and design collateral
- Hosting (LAMP environment)
You will provide:
- Configuration and customization of Drupal and required Drupal modules and third-party libraries/code
- Any necessary custom modules or custom code
We have attached the wireframes for your reference.
Development is slated to run from mid-November to mid-December, with a beta being delivered in mid-December. Once the beta is delivered to the client, there will be a roughly 1-week period for client testing and bug-fixing, with the site slated to launch in mid-January. If you are bidding on this project you must have capacity and availability to meet this schedule. Schedules for this project are dictated by the client, so you must be able and willing to work within a defined schedule.
Instructions for bidding:
1) Please see the attached documentation for an idea of scope. Bids should be based on this documentation, with the understanding that there may be minor additions or refinements during the project.
2) You must supply an actual bid (not just a pre-bid). If you absolutely must get clarification on a feature, you can post a message on the PMB, and we will answer it as best we can, but please keep questions to a minimum. One of the most important qualifications for potential providers is the ability to quickly and accurately interpret requirements, without requiring a huge amount of hand-holding.
3) You must be able to demonstrate experience with Drupal and be able to provide links to Drupal sites you've worked on. Your examples should include projects of similar functionality and scope to this project. You must also be able to demonstrate your dedication to quality, both through solid coding (following best practices, such as not hacking core), and thorough testing. Finally, you must be able to demonstrate a track-record of reliable project management and on-time delivery.
4) You must be able to work within the rough project schedule described above.
5) All work is done under a standard NDA and Non-Compete. You must be able to enter into such agreements.
In general, we want a provider who can work within the project documentation we provide, and deliver high quality builds without unnecessary drama. Our clients are our business, and we've made our reputation delivering one-time, without excuses. We expect any provider we work with to do the same.
We also expect that all builds and deliverables will confirm to industry standards and that your team will adhere to the relevant best practices (such as the Drupal best practices for Drupal development) at all times. We do review the code periodically and will not accept code that has security issues, performance issues, or is poorly organized or commented, or is likely to be difficult to maintain
