**EMS - Event Management System
**We are currently in the process of building an online event management system. We are looking for someone to _**write a whitepaper**_ which will help us prepare our RAC bid request for the actual project. We need to decide which technologies we should use for different sections of the application. The online event management tool will help event organizers setup, organize and execute events. The site will be an extremely robust version of evite.com.
You will NOT be doing any coding. This is a technical white paper only.
Please download the attachment for a more detailed description.
