Request for Proposals for a Demonstration of an Online Auction Site
Designers, please note: This is not a request for proposals to build out a website, but only to build a _demonstration of how a site might work_. The specific purpose of the site is not being disclosed at this time. For the purposes of preparing a bid, we have attached an example of an online auction site for estate sales. This is not the intended purpose, but the processes necessary are very similar. The winning bidder will be asked to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement before work on the actual demonstration begins.
We are looking for a sophisticated and polished demonstration that may be accessed from a website or CD-ROM and used to solicit potential investors. Along with a description of the processes that need to be demonstrated, included in the attached document is a link to a demonstration with the quality of work we desire and a list of the features from that demonstration that we would like incorporated in this project.
In order to be considered, your response must include an estimate of the cost for the demonstration, an outline of the demonstration you propose and examples, or links to examples, of similar, completed projects.
