DELIVERY ADDRESS

OBJECTIVE

EDABC wishes to retain the services of a British Columbia based consulting firm to redesign EDABC’s current website using cost effective software and tools that will enable the staff of EDABC and our members the ability to easily utilize and update. EDABC also wishes to develop an “app” for use on Blackberry, Android and Apple compatible smartphones and tablets.

BACKGROUND

The Economic Development Association of BC (EDABC) is an independent, non-profit, incorporated association of persons engaged in economic development. The Association was organized in 1981. In 2012, the Association passed a resolution to change its name to the British Columbia Economic Development Association, incorporated to reflect British Columbia first. This change will take effect with the launch of this new website.

Today’s membership embraces a broad spectrum of development individuals at all levels... each adding their specialized knowledge to the growing accumulation of valuable information available through the Association.

Members of EDABC are regularly exposed to new ideas in the ever expanding field of economic development. The EDABC logo is recognized as the mark of the professional in economic development. Our members´ constant contact with all phases of the development process makes them valued individuals within the development network. Through this interchange of ideas, members of EDABC bring a high degree of expertise and awareness to the complex business of community development. These skills are available to industrial/commercial/tourism enterprises as well as municipal policy makers who wish to broaden their community’s tax base and employment opportunities.

Questions concerning this RFP may be directed to The National Association of Team Survivor (NATS) board of directors, also at: info@teamsurvivor.org.
 
ISSUE  

The current website for NATS www.teamsurvivor.org was created approximately 6 years ago. It consists of static website pages and contains nearly 50 pages with roughly 2 photographs per page. The layout and navigation is poor and making changes or updates to the site is difficult and not user-friendly.
 
SCOPE OF SERVICES  

The Board of Directors of NATS is interested in receiving proposals to create a professional, clean, responsive and dynamic website resource for our affiliates and their members.  The finished product should have a consistent look and feel to all pages (fonts, graphics and color schemes), load rapidly and provide easy navigation between pages. The new site should be a responsive / mobile-friendly site that is easily viewed and navigated on mobile devices, however, it is not required that the site be specifically designed and developed as a “Mobile” site.
 
The existing site, www.teamsurvivor.org  should be used as an example of what is required on the new site.  The new site should include but not be limited to:

1. Links to corporate sponsors and our national charity event, The Iron Girl Triathlon series
2. Skin third-party interfaces for seamless user experiences to sites such as Active.com for member registrations to events and Caf├ęPress.com for Merchant services
3. Affiliates page, with links to existing Affiliate sites
4. Affiliate page ‘template’ to be used when new affiliates are formed as their new website
5. All photos and references to Danskin (prior corporate and event sponsor) must be removed
6. Be registered with the major search engines to ensure the website is listed
7. Be Search Engine Optimized so the website can be found when Internet users search for the website using keyword phrases
8. Use a Content Management System (CMS) capable of being maintained and updated by NATS, including the ability to:
a. Upload images and place into website pages
b. Easily create and add new website pages
 
WEBSITE DESIGN 

The website should have a modern, contemporary design, which utilizes the existing NATS logo and color. The new website should use several main navigation links or graphics, with drop-down lists of sub-pages so the user can easily navigate to any website page within the website.
 
HOSTING 

Proposals should include: Location of host servers, Number of servers, Server up-rate%. It is anticipated that NATS personnel will update page content as needed, therefore proposals should include quotes for initial training in site maintenance. Proposals should include quotes to have the site's creator maintain the site as well. 
 
TECHNOLOGY  

Website technology should ensure all best-practices are in place for future site growth.  Proposals should include all software, interfaces, analytics etc. that developer intends to implement.
 
PROPOSAL EVALUATION  

Proposals will be evaluated based on previous experience creating similar websites, quality of previous work, time to completion and costs.
Proposals should specifically include:

1. A list of similar websites created within the past 36 months, including the web address and contact person at the organization/corporation for which the site was created.
2. Project timeline
3. Costs by:

  • Architecture & Design
  • Programming
  • Monthly Hosting fee
  • Hourly Rate for Training NATS users to make changes to the site
