ArchivesSpace is seeking proposals from individuals or firms interested in providing development for a limited scope project to add functionality to the container management area of the application. We are prioritizing this work for engagement of an outside contractor based on expressed interest from a number of members, including one that may have funding to pay for it. Please feel free to forward this RFP on to people you think may be interested and qualified to do this work.


We are asking that people please email proposals to Christine Di Bella ( by October 27, 2017. Proposals should include a proposed action plan, pricing, timeline, names and contact information for at least two client references, and examples of relevant work in ArchivesSpace or other applications. If you have questions about the RFP, feel free to send them to Christine as well. Laney can answer technical questions about the application and how delivery of code would work.

Issuing RFPs for specific projects is another strategy we are using to diversify our pool of available developers and continue to making substantial forward progress on the application. If you have any questions, or if you have suggestions for projects that may be particularly appropriate for this type of treatment, please just let us know.
