Tapas: Sites.usa.gov provides agencies with WordPress as a content management tool. The sites team is looking for someone to help develop a checklist that will help agencies jump start their preparation to using sites.usa.gov.
Problem: The sites team is delivering WordPress instances to customers, but they often go live slowly, or not at all, because the customer was not adequately prepared. We need someone who can pull together a checklist based on materials that we already have with those “things”/factors (no more than 20 “things”!) that need to be considered before implementing a site. If you have implemented a website (preferably with a CMS) or have knowledge of, or interest in, learning more about WordPress this task is for you.
Background: The checklist will be shared with to potential customers after a kick off call. Our goal is to have:
more WordPress instances going live
more sites using the sites.usa.gov program, and
more federal websites managing their content in WordPress
If you want to learn more, the sites.usa.gov team can share our standard powerpoint presentation, and there is plenty of information on the site itself (sites.usa.gov). The sites team will also answer any questions you have via email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Are you in? Want to help your federal colleagues, and be posted for bragging rights on sites.usa.gov? Then push the blue button.
Duration: 2-4 hours
Deadline: Two weeks after accepting the task
