This is a unique oportunity to develop the back end of a very special and potentially high profile matchmaking site, in the style of craiglist. Its aim is truly altruistic and non-profit, but, obviously, the contract will be paid in full.
The 'enhanced' aspect would be expanding the accounts feature of craigslist ([url removed, login to view]) to include many more fields that could be incorporated into a database of the site's users. That way, even if a user didn't post new ads, he could be kept aware of projects and people that meet his needs on a periodic basis. It would also allow other users to search for attributes of the members without having to post everyone's details.
The 'high profile' part is because the site is a tool to link "haves" and "have-nots" to promote economic development in one of the world's most conflicted regions. Your help in creating the database would be an important service for the site's users, the international community and, potentially, great marketing for your firm. The whole idea is to give work to companies from lesser developed regions: the companies on [url removed, login to view] are exactly those we're looking to help.
The contract is in two parts: the first is to finish the development of the site, particularly the database aspect, and work with my company until we're satisfied. The second part would be a long-term agreement to service and expand the site over time. Initially, the service agreement would be for one year, but it would be preferable to find a technology provider that would like to be part of this project for many more years to come.
The response has been overwhelming. In less than two days, we have received more than 30 bids for the project.
The average bid nows is about $1000. For that price, my company would pay $250 into the escrow account for release when the initial build is completed. The second $250 would be sent after the first 3 months of operations, paying for the changes and updates that are always required as a site goes live. The remaining $500 would be paid out at $100 per month for the remainder of the 12 months. We would like a "lifetime" commitment and, for that, could offer to maintain the company on retainer for a smaller monthly fee, forever.
This site will be particularly controversial. It is being built to unite Muslim, Christian, Jew, and others, around economic development of land common to us all. For that reason, companies with Arabic and English speakers are extended a special invitation to bid, as the site could become multi-lingual in the future.
If you or your company cannot support this message, please withdraw your bid. If you beleive being part of this organization could jeopordize exisiting contracts you may have, please withdraw your bid. If you have any doubt of the seriousness of this project and do not care if it becomes a success, please withdraw your bid.
If your company believes in working for peace between religions and peoples, then we look forward to working with you. Good luck on the bidding!
