As described in earlier chapters, your Global Treps team would pay for a new website and account through an online provider. Bobby would do most of the customization and programming for the site, but you would consider outsourcing or purchasing services to provide some of the capabilities like accepting donations and developing the short videos on the site. You would also buy a new laptop and Internet access for your three team members abroad, which they could share with their contacts in those countries. You have budgeted $20,000 for outsourced hardware and software. The activities listed in your WBS for outsourced software development include the following:
18.104.22.168 Domain name and site hosting
22.214.171.124 Donation acceptance feature of website
126.96.36.199 Video creation for website
Bobby is very familiar with purchasing domain names and site hosting and has already looked into options for providing the donation acceptance feature. However, you all agree that you need professionals to create the videos for the website. Brainstorm options for this procurement, and research potential suppliers. Summarize your findings in a short paper, and include at least three references.
Draft potential clauses that you could include in the contract to provide incentives and/or penalties for on-time and within-budget delivery of high-quality videos that users would enjoy watching. Be creative in your response, and document your ideas in a short paper. Be sure to describe how you will measure if the criteria were met and what the incentives and/ or penalties would be.
