We currently have a developer in Egypt (who has and is still working on a webpage for us entitled CAPIC -- it is rather complex as there is a matching process run every year between the students who apply for internships and the Agency requirements). This is .php based. We need to take the current code (.php, MySQL) and rework another and/or additional functions based on CRM (Tiger) and CMS (Joomla). You may need to alter the base code ... however, this is an opensource system.
This is fully compliant code - CSF - that we need to look good and work with multiple browsers (Safari, Firefox, IE 6&7, etc). Bascially, we have code written for pre-doctoral students and need a mirror code written for post-doc students. We need a searchable database, email system, and a process developed for the Adminstrator to approve changes on line, followed by publishing on the website.
In summary, we will be giving the new service provider a code base --where you will need to create a branch. Cleaning this project up will definitely lead to a second (and more) iterations.
We are currently looking at hourly rates (which may/or not lead into project rates).
If you are an EXCELLENT developer (who really wants to understand user requirments) you may be the perfect fit, and we would like to hear from you.
Please do not respond unless you have at least three reference checks that we can contact -- either provide them with your response (and/or confirm that you have already been accepted by several service providers at this work site). Thank You.
