WordPress Developer RFP

Thank you for your interest in this initiative. Please review the description and then complete the form below.

Request for Proposal: Project-Based WordPress Developer


Established in 1997, the River North Residents Association (RNRA) is a 501(c)4 non-profit resident advocacy organization working to protect and enhance the quality of life in Chicago’s River North neighborhood. The primary areas of focus have been public safety, responsible development and commerce, infrastructure and amenities, public green space, support for local charities and entertainment and social events. RNRA represents over 11,000 members.

RNRA’s WordPress website is the organization’s primary digital platform for engagement with members, sponsors and other constituents. Since its launch, the site has been very reliable, its functionality has been adequate and several members of the leadership team have been trained to add, edit and manage basic content.

From time to time, RNRA will undertake a project that involves adding or changing more complicated website features, plugins or widgets, or integrating external platforms. Such projects may require the services of a WordPress developer with more advanced coding skills and experience. RNRA wishes to establish a relationship with such an individual or enterprise that will function as an external I/T consultant on an as-needed basis.


  1. RNRA will send to the Consultant, well in advance and in a format agreed to by the parties, a description of the proposed project, and/or the particular technical challenge facing the organization and the objective(s) it wishes to achieve.
  2. The Consultant will respond, in a manner and time-frame agreed to by the parties, with a proposal including the costs, resources and time required to complete the project.
  3. If the proposal is accepted, the project will commence. Each project will constitute a separate contractual agreement.
  4. The parties will communicate as needed before, during and after each engagement.
  5. Upon successful completion of each project, RNRA will remit the agreed-upon payment to the Consultant.
  6. Consultant will provide post-project technical support as agreed to by the parties.

Other Requirements

  1. In the event that RNRA grants access to any proprietary or non-public systems, platforms, materials or information, consultant must protect such assets in an appropriate manner as directed.
  2. Consultant will be considered an independent contractor and not an employee.
  3. Projects are expected to commence early in Q1/2018.
