MORPC issues RFP for website development and design services

REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS
WEBSITE DEVELOPMENT AND DESIGN SERVICES

The Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MORPC) is requesting proposals from interested and qualified firms within the United States to perform website development and design services.
MORPC is a voluntary association of local government communities in the 15-county Central Ohio region. Our organization strives to enhance the quality of life and competitive advantages of Central Ohio by working through local governments and other constituents. A catalyst for change, evidence of MORPC’s work is seen every day through planning, programming and services in the areas of transportation, energy, data and mapping, development, the environment, and public policy. We assist our local government members by providing innovative solutions for the many challenges facing our growing region.

The MORPC website is regarded as the front door to the organization. We view the website as an engaging vehicle to educate our members, potential new members and the community about regional issues and projects. Since 1996, MORPC has operated and maintained a website, www.morpc.org, to keep members, stakeholders, community leaders and the general public aware of and involved with MORPC’s work. Together, MORPC’s Public Affairs and Information Technology teams work together to keep the website a dynamic, relevant and important component of MORPC’s overall public relations strategy. The website is also important in meeting requirements of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, and the Ohio Open Meetings Act.

MORPC strives to increase the engagement of members, the Central Ohio regional community, policymakers, and other audiences. In order to achieve this goal, MORPC would like to develop a new website that allows for community discussion, interaction and collaboration; provides the website in other languages; conveys how MORPC is relevant and valuable to the region; enhances member satisfaction; employs the latest technologies in web design; and allows for simple and quick updating.

Firms interested in being considered must submit five (5) printed copies of the proposal and one (1) in the form of a compact disc or jump drive in a PDF format. Proposals will be received by MORPC until 12 noon on Friday, June 30, 2017.

Submit Proposals to: Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission Attn: Bevan Schneck 111 Liberty Street, Suite 100 Columbus, OH 43215 bschneck@morpc.org
