REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL: Website Revision & Support

The City of Muskegon (hereafter referred to as “the City” or “City”) invites qualified website design firms/consultants to submit proposals to redesign, upgrade, support, and host our municipal website found at https://www.muskegon-mi.gov/

The purpose of this Request for Proposal (RFP) is to solicit proposals for the most appropriate vendor at a firm, fixed price, including implementation services.

(For the purposes of this RFP, a “proposer” is a vendor who has submitted a response to this RFP.)

Although the City is requesting proposals for implementation and management of a CMS, including software and services that include any, and all, third-party components, the City, at its sole discretion, may choose to procure third-party components directly, in addition to, or in lieu of, any identified in specific proposals.

The City expects to have a fully accessible and secure internet website through the selected managed service provider on or before June 1, 2021. This schedule is subject to change at the discretion of the City.
Proposals that include multiple vendors must clearly identify one vendor as the “prime contractor” and all others as subcontractors.

The City reserves the right to reject any or all proposers whose proposals do not meet all of the City’s stated mandatory requirements or cost which exceeds the amount that the City determines it is able to afford for this procurement.

We have received bids from the following companies and are in the process of reviewing submissions – Thank you!

Public Notice – Ramsey Conflict of Interest 2-23-21

On Tuesday, February 23, 2021 at 5:30 pm via zoom, the City Commission will consider a request to enter into an agreement with Mercy Health Partners to extend their lease agreement at the Arena Annex Building for one additional year.

Commissioner Ramsey has disclosed he has a conflict of interest with regard to projects and partnerships between the City of Muskegon and Mercy Health.
