Questions

Q: There is a Drupal-based community site that will also need maintenance. Do these updates invoice basic content/html updates or updates of the core Drupal CMS?

A: We will require core Drupal CMS updates such as updates to templates, the appearance of the landing page, the addition or removal of nodes/features.

Q: Are you open to addressing larger projects such as microsites as their own project rather than part of the retainer? Is going beyond the 15 hours monthly an option?

A: Given the amount of time it may take to create microsites, Women’s World Banking will work with the consultant to structure projects to either fit within the estimated 15 hours per month or amend the 15 hours per month to ensure timely completion.
