We have a Web Application that we need to outsource.
The architecture of which is C#/VB.Net 3.5 SP1 with Microsoft MVC, and SQL Server (2008) for data persistence. The project also requires generating some reports, and presenting them through the application, using a 3rd party reporting platform (to be discussed/decided), together with a 3rd party document library (to be discussed/decided).
We would require that the project be started at some point during April, and is likely to take several months. All work undergone is scoped as version 1.0, and scope for version 2.0 is already growing, so this is likely to be the start of a long running business relationship.
The attached document is an overview, you will have lots of questions, however it does state all the technologies and the types of work to be carried out. If you KNOW you can work with these, please ask me for the more detailed documents/submit an hourly figure for your team/work.
NOTE: it is highly desirable to put this bid out to a company that can assign more than one person to the task. There is the standard (Web) Development work, and there are also a number of Reports to be written. This is a simple case for splitting the work and getting it done quicker since they can be done in parallel (once the database has been designed for each milestone).
Could you also include answers to the following in your bid requests/submitted pricings:
1.? A brief list of any high profile/ well known past customers
2.? Any awards you/your company has won
3.? Have you/anyone in your team worked with SQL Reporting Services before?
Thanks for looking.
