Will the decision have any effect on the package of features that may be offered on the website?

    The website Design Requirements - IEEE Computer July 2002
    1) Navigation
    2) Response Time
    3) Content
    4) Interactivity & Responsiveness

    The Manager needs to consider the Cost Benefit Analysis

    4) Software
    5) Training

    Outsourcing
    1) Security
    2) Reliability
    3) Maintenance
    4) Re-scalability
    5) Service level agreement

    MP - $ 3,000
    CW/E - $ 5,000
    WM - $ 6,000
    --------------------
    Total - $ 17,000
    ---------------------

    Facilities
    Electricity, Water, Gas for Heating - $50 per person x 5 - $250

    Software
    Dreamweaver, Frontpage & Photoshop etc. Depreciation $ 125 (Capital Cost $3000, Depreciation: 1500/12 months)

    Training/Induction
    $ 50 per person x 5 - $250/-

    Average Website Development time - 3 months.
    Total cost - $ (17,000+250+125)x 3 + 250 = $ 52,375/-
    Note: Salary+Facilities+Software Depreciation for 3 months + Training Cost

    Therefore if an outside company agrees to do the website at a lesser cost within 3 months it is acceptable.
