Website Development Proposal

Path

Resource Library
June 2020

Thank You

Thank you for the opportunity to submit a Website Development proposal for Path and the DMPA-SC Access Collaborative resource library. Foundry19 specializes in building premier website properties that not only look great and effectively convey your message but are also very easy to use and update.

We believe this project is not only a great fit for us, but also a perfect fit for the WordPress. We have been working with WordPress for since 2010 (version 2.9.2!) and are excited to share our knowledge and expertise with the #1 web platform with you!

Thank you again for your consideration.

Project Overview

Path is seeking a Website Development Consultant that is able to strategize, design and build an online resource library for the DMPA-SC Access Collaborative. The resource library should facilitate DMPA-SC country introduction, scale-up planning and provide technical assistance to ensure implementation of each country’s total market plan as well as help raise awareness of funding gaps among donors. The website should also have a low bandwidth requirement, be mobile friendly as well as intuitive for the end user and website administrators.

Deliverables

In close collaboration with the project team, Foundry19 will:

  • Help develop a content delivery strategy
  • Create an information architecture for the website that will meet today’s needs and accommodate future plans (blog, calendar, activity tracker, etc)
  • Design website UI and work with the project team to refine designs
  • Design mobile version of website
  • Build website in WordPress
  • Integrate existing dashboard using best derived solution (likely just an external link or iFrame)
  • QA and test website across multiple platforms
  • Train project team members how to manage website
  • Host and support website (optional)

Website Strategy/ Proposed Approach

Since the Foundry19 team specializes in WordPress framework, all three solutions will be built in WordPress. The determination of which approach is best will likely come from our first few meetings. Our plan is to provide an external link to the current dashboard or “frame it into the site” using iframes.

Solutions Will Feature:

The ability to add resources (files) with attributes with, and not limited to, the following:

  • File Name
  • File Excerpt (Short Description)
  • File Description
  • Extracted text (for images that may need search terms)
  • Keywords
  • Creation Date
  • Revision Date
  • Category
  • Tag
  • Views (Downloads)
  • Custom Icon
  • etc.

There will also be a robust search that will find files by any of these attributes. This search will read and index PDF files as well. With this methodology, we will be able to create custom pages based on attributes as well.

Solution concept 1: (Search)

Resource library will be a standard, searchable document library where documents are organized alphabetically by category. We will employ an Ajax search that automatically filters the file list as the user types in a search box.

Solution concept 2: (Drill down)

We will create “pathways” to files based on the file taxonomy and document category. The user will “drill down” to the document they are searching for by answering “questions” about their needs.

Solution concept 3: (Both!)

Ideally, we could employ both of these approaches and monitor how the site is used to determine which is best.
