I am a subcontractor in this process trying to convince the main contractor to use Rentacoders for this project. It is up to them to approve the final bid if they finally agree to do the project here. It may be that they will use US coders at higher rates, but I will try to convince them to go here. Please be aware that it may take up to two-three weeks to get final approval to begin this project once the bids are presented to them even if they do choose to use Rentacoder.
The project is converting an internal company Access 2000/VB application to run on PHP/mySQL. The project has 37 forms, 20 tables, 11 reports, and 30 queries that all need to be migrated to run on PHP/mySQL. 30 of the forms are very simple, 11 of the forms are of medium complexity, and 4 of the forms are very complex, and include emailing the form, printing reports, etc..
The company logo will be placed on some pages but otherwise there will be no graphics of any kind (other than perhaps buttons and other small embellishments). The existing VB application will be the specification for this project (sample screenshots for selected pages are available) and there will be an additional Apache and mySQL security layer required to be developed on top of the application itself so that only authorized users can access the pages of the site itself. An administrator login will be required to add/edit/delete user account access to the site. No other administration pages will be required other than these and those already in the VB app itself.
This project is a very straightforward conversion of functionality from VB/Access to PHP/mySQL. The PHP code must be of very highest quality and be written to the highest level of contemporary security coding standards. All configuration variables must be limited to one file that must be secure and not placed in a publicly-browsable directory. All objects should occur in only one place.
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.
2) Seller will deliver all files (source and otherwise) in a single complete package that can be installed on an Apache/PHP/mySQL installation with minimal configuration (no installer required, but zip expansion into a directory hierarchy at a minimum), including the scripts to build the mySQL database on the live site. Seller will provide step-by-step installation instructions, including what files need to be installed where, what scripts need to be run, what variables need to be set up in the configuration file, etc.. Buyer will install the application in the final live environment, so these instructions need to be accurate and precise.
3) All deliverables will be considered "work made for hire" under U.S. Copyright law. Buyer will receive exclusive and complete copyrights to all work purchased. (No GPL, GNU, 3rd party components, etc. unless all copyright ramifications are explained AND AGREED TO by the buyer on the site per the coder's Seller Legal Agreement).
I am not hard to work with but I do have VERY high standards and expectations. I expect to pay for good work and I will check the credentials and select candidates who have the best experience and feedback ratings for the job over those who bid the lowest price. If you have specific relevant experience, please indicate so. Examples of specific work are preferred.
