I am looking for expressions of interest from coders who are interested in developing online Auction software to our requirements (currently being written).
Please submit an indicative bid only if you can meet all of the requirements outlined below. We will then create a shortlist, publish the requirements and invite the shortlisted candidates to bid in a private auction.
The system should be able to run continous auctions (based on categories like e-bay), but also scheduled auctions that will allow items to be submitted by an administrator (auctioneer) and then run for a period of ‘x’ days. "Usual" auction features such as email alerts of being outbid, forgotten password, etc will also be a requirement.
The visuals are not important as we will be tailoring that to our client’s requirements. Good design is important ??" we may want to re-use the auction engine or extend it ourselves.
The front-end should be created in ASP.NET, backend database as MS-SQL Server.
The auction engine can be created in either C#, VB.NET or Borland Delphi 7 **only**. The language and database choices are non-negotiable.
You can look at the website [url removed, login to view] as this has many of the features we are looking for.
1) An non-binding indication of the project cost based on the (rough) requirements specified above. 2) Details of experience relevant to this project. (reference sites if possible). Particular reference to auction software or highly scalable web development appreciated.
