Website Design and Redevelopment - The BCSMPO Policy Board and staff are pleased to announce that we have a signed contract for the redesign and update of our website. After a two-month process of releasing a Request For Proposals, recieving submitted proposals, evaluations and contract negotiations we are excited to announce that
of Manhattan, Kansas is now under contract with BCSMPO to perform the work of redesigning and updating our website.
We received a good deal more proposals than we expected, which was gratifying to say the least! All of the proposals that we received were, on the face of it, capable of giving us the product that we are seeking. The Evaluation Team met and discussed their approach to scoring the proposals that were received. It was their decision to conduct an initial scoring of all of the proposals received and narrow the list down to a top four that, in the eyes of the Evaluation Team, seemed to have the approach that best meets the needs of BCSMPO.
Next, the top four submittals were reviewed in a more focused manner; looking for the best fit with respect to:
From this process, there emerged two top candidates. These two were interviewed by phone, by the Evaluation Team. At the end of this process the Team selected the firm that in their eyes provided the best “fit” for BCSMPO.
It was the consensus of the Team that all proposals would provide an adequate level of security given our needs, however one firm did exceed our expectations. At the end of this process, the determining factors were price, then creativity, with level of support being secondary.
With the proposals scored and evaluated and the process completed, the deciding factor became how well the team felt the chosen firm would mesh with BCSMPO staff and our needs.
Once again, BCSMPO staff would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the proposers for their time and effort in proposing for our website update. We are very pleased with the process thus far and we wish all proposers good fortune for the future.
