We have developed a VB6-application in the bank I work (in Denmark) which serves as a calculation engine for several other applications mostly micorsoft applications. The calculation engine calculates cashflows and other costs for bonds and mortgage loans under different conditions and assumptions. The code is about 100.000 lines and the design is quite poor (not really object oriented, not multi-tiered, highly coupled and with low cohesion). We are therefore considering different possibilities for refactoring/rewriting the code in a .NET environment. At the same time we are considering different outsourcing options. The project includes the following:
Task 1- Rewriting the existing code according to state of the art methods (agile programming, OO-design, well documented and easily maintainable).
Task 2- Maintainance of the new code for incoming changes and additions.
We will take care of describing the underlying requirements, business logic descriptions and we can provide you with UML-artifacts such as sequence diagrams and operations contracts on different use cases. We will also be able to develop some central use-cases (from A to Z) in order to capture the flow in the applications. We should agree on the structure of this "proof of concept" code, before moving on to developing the whole application.
When bidding I would appreciate your clarifying answers on the following:
1- Can you manage both tasks 1 and 2?
2- What is the starting process like, i.e. how would you start the work on the project with us?
3- What is the price (euro or dollar) you can offer us on a developer/hour basis?
4- What is your very first rough estimate on the number of hours required to perform task 1 given the information given here on the nature of the project.
5- What is the frequency of your deliverables?
6- What is the frequency of your communications with us, within different phases of the project?
7- How do we communicate?
8- Do you have any favorite web based project management environments (what are the underlying technologies you would use for that, trac, subversion and so on)
9- How are the payments made? (before or after deliverables)
I look forward to hearing from you on this offer.
