The Columbia Metro Rotary, a service club located in Columbia, Missouri has issued an RFP for a new mobile website. The club has been active in mentoring youth and is partnering with other clubs to improve community connections so at risk youth and young adults can be more successful. This is related to a larger need of building social capital for at risk youth.
Rotary is an organization of business and professional leaders united worldwide who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world. In more than 160 countries worldwide, approximately 1.3 million Rotarians belong to more than 30,000 Rotary clubs.
From the earliest days of the organization, Rotarians were concerned with promoting high ethical standards in their professional lives. One of the world’s most widely printed and quoted statements of business ethics is The 4-Way Test, which was created in 1932 by Rotarian Herbert J. Taylor (who later served as RI president) when he was asked to take charge of a company that was facing bankruptcy. This 24-word code of ethics for employees to follow in their business and professional lives became the guide for sales, production, advertising, and all relations with dealers and customers, and the survival of the company is credited to this simple philosophy.
- Specific Scope. The website will be mobile friendly with a simple, clean, functional design attractive to the 16 to 26 age group. The website shall support the following functions: (i) Posting by Rotary clubs of available Rotary programs, services and resources in a searchable format; (ii) Registration forms that allow youth to register for available programs and services; (iii) Program and service request forms that allow users to make suggestions for additional programs or services needed; (iv) Resource volunteer registration forms to be filled out by Rotarian volunteers who are participating in or providing Rotary programs, services or resources; (v) Formatted reports that allow the club administrators to extract registrations/volunteers and (vi) Tracking reports that provide club administrators with the ability to track attendance/use of programs and services by program and individuals (i.e. records of who attended a program or service or used an identified resource, and the programs, services and resources used by specific individuals). The proposer should plan on a period for piloting or testing a beta version of the site. The proposer should plan on at least three meetings with the project group, predesign, initial design, and post beta site testing.
