Request For Proposal (RFP) For Website
For Assignment 2, you are going to write a Request for Proposal (RFP) for your new website. The website creation itself is Assignment 3 and you are going to create the website – but don’t concern yourself with that just yet.

(Then, in Assignment 3, you are going to create the site, delivering what you are asking the web development company to do).

[Discuss too your expectations of their hosting your site, service level agreements, privacy policies, and other common website standards.
