rfp-robotRFP ROBOT: Website Request for Proposal Generator

The time has come for a new website (or website redesign), which means you need to write a website request for proposal or web RFP. A Google search produces a few examples, but they vary wildly and don’t seem to speak really to your goals for developing or redesigning a new website. You need to write a website RFP that will clearly articulate your needs and generate responses from the best website designers and developers out there. But how?

Have no fear, RFP Robot is here. He will walk you through a step-by-step process to help you work through the details of your project and create a PDF formatted website design RFP that will provide the information vendors need to write an accurate bid. RFP Robot will tell you what info you should include, point out pitfalls, and give examples.

FADE IN:
EXT. THE “HOLLYWOOD” SIGN – ESTABLISHING SHOT – MORNING
EXT. HOLLYWOOD, AN OFFICE BUILDING(HOWARD exits the building in a huff, speaking on his cellphone.)
HOWARD: Gary, no more interviews!…. Baba Booey, listen to me, no more! (He looks around.) And where’s the car?… Where am I? I’m on… (freaking out) Oh, God, Hollywood Boulevard! (He is immediately set-upon by throngs of adoring fans requesting selfies.) Never mind, I’ll grab a cab! (He disconnects and flees up Highland, frantically waving his hand to hail a taxi. Finally, a taxi stops and he rushes inside.)
HOWARD: The Bonaventure Hotel!
EXT. WESTIN BONAVENTURE – ESTABLISHING SHOT (The hotel is an enormous contemporary structure in Downtown Los Angeles.)
INT. WESTIN BONAVENTURE, RONNIE RAY’S HOTEL ROOM (RONNIE examines himself in the full-length mirror, confident that he is prepared to face the day at DrupalCon LA. In fact, he’s the very model of a modern major network newscaster, albeit more hairy and clueless. So here he is, showered, combed, and nicely dressed. He slips on his Drupal Watchdog ID tag and stands straight and tall. He thinks, “Okay, interviews today with Morten, Nate and Jen, maybe Fabian, maybe Angie.”)
[EDITOR’S NOTE: Ron, it’s a movie, how do we know what the character is thinking?]
[NOTE TO EDITOR: Jeremy, a great actor can express thoughts without words. To play me – I mean, “Ronnie” – my agent is negotiating with CAA for Clooney, Brad Pitt, or, in a pinch, Jack Black. But if it’s stressing you out, “Ronnie” can just mutter to himself.]
RONNIE: (muttering to himself) Okay, interviews today with Morten, Nate and Jen, maybe Fabian, maybe Angie.
(He grabs his clipboard and heads out into the hall.)
EXT. WESTIN BONAVENTURE(Howard exits the taxi.)
INT. WESTIN BONAVENTURE, HALL(Ronnie, at the yellow elevator bank, rings for an elevator.)
INT. WESTIN BONAVENTURE, LOBBY(Howard strides into the hotel and looks around for the yellow elevator bank.)
