Additional Details

IEA is looking for a partner to update our current website. Currently, IEA's website is built on WordPress, but the theme we are currently using is not compatible with WordPress updates. We are currently over a year behind on major WordPress and plugin updates. We are looking to migrate our website off our Envato Child theme to a new WordPress theme, compatible with current updates and onto a theme that will be more manageable to update on a consistent basis.

How This Will Help
