ArchivesSpace is seeking proposals from individuals or firms interested in providing development for a limited scope project to add functionality to the container management area of the application. Please see the attachment for the details. We are prioritizing this work for engagement of an outside contractor based on expressed interest from a number of our members. Please feel free to respond to or forward this RFP on to people you think may be interested and qualified to do this work.
We are asking that people please email proposals to me ([log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>) by October 27, 2017. Proposals should include a proposed action plan, pricing, timeline, names and contact information for at least two client references, and examples of relevant work in ArchivesSpace or other applications. If people have questions about the RFP, feel free to send them my way as well. Our Tech Lead, Laney McGlohon ([log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>), can answer technical questions about the application and how delivery of code would work.
ArchivesSpace is currently pursuing multiple concurrent paths in development, and issuing RFPs for specific projects is one of the strategies we are using to diversify the pool of available developers for the application. If you have any questions, would like to get more involved with ArchivesSpace in general, or have ideas about good ways to attract archives-savvy developers, please just let us know.
Thanks for your consideration,
Christine Di Bella
ArchivesSpace Program Manager
