RFP for website design and development

The Town of McCandless is soliciting proposals from qualified service providers for a complete refresh of the Town's website and content management system. The last significant upgrade was undertaken in 2018.

Although the 2018 redesign made significant strides forward in the Town's online presence, users of the current website still report difficulty in finding the information they need and a desire to be able to accomplish more online, such as bill payments and service request tracking. The project seeks to address these issues while also adding back-end functionality for Town staff to work more directly in maintaining online content for their departments.

Interested parties can download the RFP from this page, as well as check the news feed for any answers to clarifying questions that have been submitted during the Q&A window.

Submissions must be received by 12:00 PM, local prevailing time, on August 26, 2022.
