Very simple, and I do mean simple intranet site.
Sketched out the basic in SharePoint, appreciate the workflows and wonderful "possibilities" - but this is very much a land an expand opportunity.
The site is a basic 5 -7 page site organized by departments. More of a hub to point employees in the write direction.
Would love to establish a master wiki as one of those pages- but that comes later.
Budget is not huge but negotiable-but we are not expecting a technical marvel- just a catch all/go to area where our CEO can post a weekly blog, and where we can post company announcements.
This page, as well as the budget will increase over time. We are looking for a long time contractor to maintain, add content etc.
