To automate our existing business we need an online auctioning system for auctioning industrial/commercial construction contracts. Unlike EBay, this is not a consumer oriented system, but entirely a selling site like [url removed, login to view] and consists only reverse-auctions. We expect the transactions to occur in approximate real-time. Our auction site consists of a list of reverse-auctions. An auction is conducted by an auctioneer (the website owner), which is to be automated. A user should be able to get a list of auctions and start bidding a specific auction. A reverse-auction, as its name implies is an auction in reverse. Several potential contractors (hereafter referred to as bidder) bid in auction format, against each other for new business opportunities with us. Only that in a reverse-auction (hereafter referred as auction), lower is better (lowest bidder wins). In an auction, we set the price we are willing to accept, and a date and time the auction ends. KINDLY SEE THE ATTACHED FILE FOR MORE DETAILS.
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.
2) Installation package that will install the software (in ready-to-run condition) on the platform(s) specified in this bid request.
3) Exclusive and complete copyrights to all work purchased. (No GPL, 3rd party components, etc. unless all copyright ramifications are explained AND AGREED TO by the buyer on the site).
We prefer the platform to be Windows 2000 and possibly in compliance with the Windows 2003/.NET technologies since our webserver is based on .NET VB, ASP, C#, etc. However if some other technologies appears feasible and poses as a good alternative we are ready to make the change.
