*RFQ: Phase 1 of Migration of TEI-C website to WordPress*

*

**

*The Text Encoding Initiative Consortium (TEI-C) 
<http://www.tei-c.org/index.xml>, an international organization that 
develops and maintains a standard for representing texts in digital 
form, plans to commission a new website for the organization, replacing 
the core of the old website that currently runs on a customized version 
of OpenCMS with a WordPress instance. The TEI-C seeks quotations from 
freelancers interested in carrying out this work in coordination with 
the TEI webmaster. Preference will be given to candidates willing to 
collaborate with the TEI webmaster using screensharing or in person in 
Denton, Texas.*

*

While a new information architecture and design for the site are planned 
for Phase 2, the first step (Phase 1) is simply to replace the existing 
OpenCMS site with a WordPress instance.


While there are various subdomains under tei-c.org, this project 
concerns only a portion of the pages on the domain www.tei-c.org 
<http://www.tei-c.org>. Specifically, it concerns only those pages, 
including the homepage, that have a common footer with a row of buttons 
and links. There are approximately 500 pages at this time.


By August 1, 2016, the TEI webmaster will:

 1.

    Set up a WordPress instance.

 2.

    Install the HTML Import module
    <https://wordpress.org/plugins/import-html-pages/>(or other modules
    upon request) to assist with the content migration.

 3.

    Share administrative credentials for the new site.

 4.

    Provide guidance on integration with components of the old site not
    under OpenCMS.

 5.

    Coordinate a freeze of all content updates on the existing site
    during the migration.

 6.

    Coordinate with the system administrator on updating domain names
    and implementing redirects.


By September 1, 2016, you will:

 1.

    Recreate (though not necessarily exactly) the current site design in
    WordPress by choosing an appropriate theme.

 2.

    Migrate each page served from OpenCMS (the HTML version, not the XML
    source) of the old site to the new site, likely with the help of the
    HTML Import module, recreating the page hierarchy and, where
    possible, the navigation menus.

 3.

    Keep a mapping of old to new URLs to allow for redirects to be put
    into place after the migration (unless using the HTML Import module,
    which generates this automatically).

 4.

    Address errors in the migration process reported by October 1, 2016.


Following completion of these tasks, the TEI-C, incorporated in the 
State of Virginia, will pay you in US dollars based on your quotation.


If interested in providing these services, please send email 
[log in to unmask] <mailto:[log in to unmask]>before July 12, 2016, with:

 1.

    the quotation (total price) for completing the tasks above

 2.

    a note about your willingness to collaborate by sharing screens or
    in person in Denton, Texas
