REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL

WEBSITE DESIGN, DEVELOPMENT,

AND HOSTING SERVICES

CHARTER TOWNSHIP OF AUSABLE – SUPERINTENDENT

RFP: 01-2015

RESPONSE DUE: March 31, 2015

 

     The Charter Township of AuSable is requesting proposals for three services related to the Charter Township of AuSable website:  (1) Professional design of the site; (2) Implementation of an infrastructure that allows Township departments to maintain their specific information within a common framework; (3) Hosting of Township website.

     Respondents must provide proposals for all three website services.  The proposals will be evaluated on the basis of price and the criteria listed below.

The goal of the Township’s website is to provide simple and intuitive electronic access to public services, serve as a public communications tool, reduce transaction costs for the Township and citizens, and to streamline business operations.  Specifically, the Township would like to redesign to better support e-government transactions such as on-line permits, on-line forms and applications and on-line payments.  As the current website www.ausabletownship.net is outdated and cumbersome for staff to maintain, the redesigned site should have a theme that promotes the Charter Township of AuSable with a welcoming, friendly and professional feel. The Township will be in charge of content management and will own all content. No web design company indicators will be permitted on the website.  Click here to view attachment.

Public Service Anouncement
AuSable & Oscoda Townships are suggesting that all water service customers should
run tap water continually from a faucet in their homes or businesses until further notice.
The water stream should be about the size of a pencil lead.  Customer's participation in
this effort is voluntary and will result in higher water bills for which customers will be
responsible.  However, under any circumstances customers may be responsible for any
necessary thawing of lines and/or cost related thereto.  Continuing subzero weather has
necessitated this request in an effort to avoid frozen water lines.  If you have questions,
please direct them to 989-739-1838 (AuSable) or 989-739-7532 (Oscoda).
Thank you!
