CITY OF SEATTLE
REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS
CONSULTANT SERVICES 

Project:  SDOT 15-067 SDOT WEBSITE REDESIGN 

The City of Seattle, through Seattle Department of Transportation, requests Proposals from qualified consulting firms for SDOT 15-067 SDOT WEBSITE REDESIGN. 

This contract is estimated to be up to $80,000 with the time of performance expected to be between August 2015 and January 2016 with possible extensions based on funding and the performance of selected consultant. 

The City of Seattle, Department of Transportation, invites Statements of Qualifications and Description of the Project Approach from qualified consulting firms to assist in redesigning our public-facing website to make it more accessible, user-friendly, and responsive to the needs of our wide-ranging customer base. Most City departments are moving toward a new citywide content management system (CMS), Ingenuix, and we want to use this impending move as an opportunity to organize the site in a more useful and engaging way. Additionally, our redesign needs to comply with the main Seattle.gov portal redesign (currently in progress) and new city-wide branding protocols (also currently in progress). We want to use this opportunity to really reimagine and reinvent the SDOT website within the context of Seattle.gov as a whole.  

We’re looking for a consultant to help us better understand how customers currently use and want to be able to use the site – to ultimately create a better user experience. Building on this knowledge, you would develop a new site architecture and taxonomy. The selected Consultant’s overall focus would be on strategy and design. Though SDOT would be responsible for developing content and for moving everything into the new CMS, the Consultant will provide guidance on best practices around content. SDOT plans to launch a new site by the end of 2015. 

Interested qualified consultants may request the Request for Proposals packet at the following address:                         https://www.ebidexchange.com/seattle 

NOTE: YOU MUST FORMALLY REGISTER AT EBID IF YOU WISH TO RECEIVE ADDENDUMS. 

The Request for Proposals packet includes a more detailed Scope of Work, administrative requirements such as subconsulting, insurance, selection process, schedule, etc. 

SOQ’s must be received by the Seattle Department of Transportation, Attention:  Ryan Hawkes, 700 Fifth Avenue, Suite 3800, P. O. Box 34996, Seattle, Washington  98124-4996 by 4:00 p.m., July 23, 2015.
