Website Design & Development
[May 20, 2016]
Request for Proposals
The City of Cheney is seeking to update its website to enhance the user experience, simplify content management, and provide better information and customer service to its residents and businesses, while meeting high standards for design quality and visual appeal.
Effective websites provide dynamic content that keeps users engaged and coming back. Effective websites also must ensure that content sought is easily found and that navigation remains user friendly. In Cheney, the management of online content has been decentralized to some extent, with the assistance of a handful of “power users.” The City would like to offer some decentralized content management to multiple content managers in each City department under the oversight of the City’s webmaster.
The City of Cheney seeks the assistance of a company that can accomplish all of the functionality identified in this RFP but has the flexibility of providing this functionality over time, if needed due to budgetary constraints. The City also seeks a company that has the capability of integrating additional features that may be needed in the future.
