The HM Group seeks a development partner for a web application project. A solid RFP has been created that outlines all technical and functional requirements required.
Bidding on this project is a simple two-step process. First, you must review, sign and return our NDA. Second, upon receipt of your signed NDA, we will issue the RFP from which you may develop your proposal. Dates for submission and required documentation are thoroughly outlined in the RFP.
While we believe this project should cost $4,000-$7,000 to develop, we want you as the expert to tell us how best to approach development based on project deliverables and desired outcomes.
There are three drivers for all projects: budget, schedule and quality. Stated another way, you can have it “fast, cheap, or good.” Realistically, you can only have two of these for any project; you can’t have all three. We can discourse the “why” behind this another time but rest assured this is the “law” of project management (and a primary contributor to why most projects fail).
With this in mind, the Primary Driver for this project is QUALITY. We absolutely, positively must end up with a quality product; one that we are happy with which in turn will delight our customers. Don’t build junk; don’t ‘bubble gum’ or ‘duck tape’ the code.
The Secondary Driver for this project is COST. Given the maturity of the web space, we believe there are enough open source resources available that you should be able to offer a solution that utilizes these existing toolsets (as is or with modifications). We don’t believe you will need to develop something from scratch.
It is our desire that both of us have a fantastic experience throughout the life cycle of the project, beginning with your proposal submission through to a successful project launch (should you be selected).
To this end, our RRP outlines seven Guiding Principles that absolutely must be adhered to. We will hold both your company and ours to these standards. We believe these principles will ensure that all of us are absolutely delighted from start to finish.
Our goal is to partner with you to build a site that totally rocks, one that will make an incredible case study and give you – and us – reason for celebration. Doesn’t this sound like a worthy goal?
So if you believe you have what it takes to partner with us, then we invite you to sign and return our NDA so we can begin the process.
Thank you for your time, effort, and interest in our Web Application Development project.
