Request for Proposal, Joomla!-based Website Maintenance (and some design)

The ICPRB is a scientific and educational quasi-governmental organization with a large, data-rich website and two smaller sites, seeking a contractual arrangement for the maintenance and evolution of its cyberspace. The sites are Joomla! Based. Commerce use of the sites is limited, although it could grow.

The ICPRB currently maintains three active sites, [url removed, login to view], [url removed, login to view], and The latter two web sites need regular backup and security maintenance, but very minimal updating.

The current sites serve the agency well, and are managed by a former staff member. We are now seeking a formal contract that includes regular maintenance, including weekly backups and security and updates, checking that links are functioning, changes to content, and creation of some additional pages when required. Suggestions on how the site can be made more effective and easier to navigate will be welcomed (for example, how can the website and the agency’s Facebook page better complement each other). Content changes may be made weekly, and sometimes more often. Some staff are able to perform simple content additions.

Regular weekly work will include site backups and security updates and software updates. Responses to this RFP can be given in the form of a retainer for regular tasks, along with an hourly rate for page changes or page design.

Interested contractors should provide:

*Estimated time needed to make several small weekly changes to content

*Estimated weekly time to run backup, security patches and periodic software updates

*Estimated time to create new pages

*Hourly rate

*Availability to quickly respond to requests to get content changes onto the site. (What times during the week are you available to respond?)

*Ability to train staff in simple maintenance and content placement tasks, either in person or through skype video or other method.

The ICPRB is strongly encouraged to use certified minority or woman-owned vendors. Please include vendor status in the proposal. The agency also would prefer a vendor in the suburban-Maryland area able to periodically meet with ICPRB staff at our Rockville, Md., office.
