Website Construction (CMS-Based)

Project Details

What We Need
  • Development of a new website using a Content Management System (CMS)
  • Training to ensure Organization's staff members can update content and manage the site post-launch
  • Note: This project is for a website built with a Content Management System (CMS), such as Wordpress, Squarespace, Joomla, Drupal, or Weebly . A CMS-based website can be maintained and updated easily (no coding required!)
Additional Details

We are looking to create a webpage on our website for farmers and brands that want to apply for Regenerative Organic Certified. Ideally this will be an online form that allows applicants to free form answer questions, check boxes that apply, and upload files/documents. We currently use WordPress to host and manage our site.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a website in WordPress, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have support from our communications consultant, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to hire on a full-time, remote specialized certification and compliance manager to review and process applications. These funds will help support full benefits for that employee.

We are currently building out a platform to host and manage all our certification data. Simultaneously, we need to build out an online application for farms and brands to apply for Regenerative Organic Certified (ROC). This online form will have multiple data entry types (check boxes, short answer, numbers, etc.) and we would also like the ability to upload multiple documents. This online application form is critical to opening up certification to the general public and beginning ROC audits.

Project Plan

Prep: Share Information
  • Volunteer Manager provides Professional with an outline of the Organization’s needs and goals for the new website, which should include any specific features that are required (e.g., contact forms, mobile responsive design, member sign in, etc.)

  • Volunteer Manager provides Professional with links to any existing online presence that the Organization has (e.g., social media, blog, existing website, etc.)
  • Volunteer Manager registers Organization's domain name with a web host, if necessary
Milestone 1: Kick-off Discussion
  • Volunteer Manager and Professional connect to discuss the timeline and scope of the website project, including: the number of pages or sections for the new website, specific features and plugins requires, look and feel for the website (themes), target date for initial review, target date for website launch
  • Professional reviews information provided and makes recommendations for which CMS application to use
  • Volunteer Manager signs up for the selected CMS application, and provides Professional with credentials to create the website
Milestone 2: Build & Review
  • Professional uses the materials provided and agreed upon timeline to build the website
  • Volunteer Manager reviews the in-progress website and provides feedback
  • Professional completes any required functional QA
Milestone 3: Website Launch
  • Professional provides final website for approval to launch
  • Volunteer Manager approves the website for launch, or requests approval from any stakeholders

  • Professional troubleshoots any issues that may arise immediately after launch

About The Org

Regenerative Organic Alliance
Our Mission

Farm like the world depends on it.
The Regenerative Organic Alliance exists to promote regenerative organic farming as the highest standard for agriculture around the world.
We emphasize farming practices that restore and build soil, ensure animal welfare, and end unfair conditions for farmers and farmworkers. In doing so, we're creating long-term solutions to some of the biggest issues of our time, including the climate crisis, factory farming, and fractured rural economies.

What We Do

We exist to heal a broken system, repair a damaged planet, and empower farmers and eaters to create a better future through better farming.
We are doing this with a revolutionary certification program that we have tested out around the globe with our pilot program in 2019. We will be opening up for general applications in Summer 2020!
