UPDATE: FIRST FOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED IN COMMENTS BELOW.
My firm Jarrett Walker + Associates is looking for quick assistance in designing a web-based tool, designed to sit on a transit agency or project website, that will help citizens think through some transit planning choices and suggest priorities. It requires the user to select different types of network for different parts of a city, and cover the whole city within a fixed budget of service.
We need the product in a month. Our absolute maximum budget $9000 but we will be very interested in proposals that come in substantially lower.
This job is likely to be suited to a small, low-overhead web programmer who can do it quickly, efficiently, and yet creatively. It could lead to a future relationship assisting us with more tools of this type, as the need arises often in our planning projects.
Everything is explained in our simple Request for Proposals, along with two attachments referenced in it. (All materials are copyright Jarrett Walker+Associates and should not be reproduced for other purposes.) All you need to do is reply with a quick letter.
If you have a question:
- Look at the comments below.
- If your question hasn't been answered, add a comment beginning with the words "Question __:" where the space is the number of your question (the last number you see, plus 1). I will then reference these numbers in my responses, which will also appear as comments. (Alas, TypePad does not support threaded comments.)
- Come back in a day or so to check for your answer.
Note: To keep the flow of critical information clear on this procurement, I am reading but then unpublishing comments that are extraneous to the question-and-answer process.
