A basic web site that I do like in my industry is

You can choose either Windows or Linux hosting with my existing host but please send reference sites as detailed in the deliverables section.
Once I have assessed all bidders based on their responses to my specific criteria and reference sites I will select based on previous ability and communication skills.
I will then send links to my existing site (which is not pretty) and additional information as required.
1) Complete and fully-functional (ie no script or engine errors) working website in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done. This includes specifically the following objectives:
A new website that is visually appealing, clean, efficient to load and has the following features:
Embedded online shopping cart which is easy to administer (self maintain) and use (from a customers perspective) - I will pay for software as required - whatever you suggest. The site will need to be able to take credit card payments and has to look like its part of our site if possible. I dont mind paypal as long as redirections are kept looking like they are on our site.
The shopping cart software must make it easy to update price lists.
I would prefer that the shopping cart integrates with leading accounts packages such as MYOB and Quickbooks or at very least I can easily export a list of all transactions.
Easily Embedded streaming videos similiar to the site [[url removed, login to view]] - I will pay for any licences for this software.
Integrated basic traffic stats. I currently use a free traffic stat tool however am open to suggestions for commercial products if cost effective.
Simple Links to our current webcams (x4) and weather station.
A current site with an example webcam link can be found at:

and the weather station at

Easily updateable news and photo gallery pages.
A current site I like is [[url removed, login to view]] however I would prefer to balance the use of flash if require to allow for a faster loading time.
***PLEASE SEND ME REFERENCE WEBSITES TO VIEW YOUR BEST WORK, preferably to links that you think I may find appropriate to how I would like my website to look as I cannot engage anyone without site references***
Please note I may subsequently need to verify these references with their owners.
2) Deliverables must be in ready-to-run condition, as follows (depending on the nature of the deliverables):
Tested as described on both Internet Explorer and Firefox in the following resolutions:
1024x768 minimum through to current SXGA resolutions.
You can have your choice either Windows or Linux web servers. We currently use a host called westnet ([[url removed, login to view]]). Please advise as to which platform you will upload to.
And of course I include the standard following legal jargon as recommended by rentacoder to protect us both.
a) For web sites or other server-side deliverables intended to only ever exist in one place in the Buyer's environment--Deliverables must be installed by the Seller in ready-to-run condition in the Buyer's environment.
b) For all others including desktop software or software the buyer intends to distribute: A software installation package that will install the software in ready-to-run condition on the platform(s) specified in this bid request.
3) All deliverables will be considered "work made for hire" under U.S. Copyright law. Buyer will receive exclusive and complete copyrights to all work purchased. (No GPL, GNU, 3rd party components, etc. unless all copyright ramifications are explained AND AGREED TO by the buyer on the site per the coder's Seller Legal Agreement).
