Razorfish Wins City Web Contract

NEW YORK — Razorfish has landed a contract to develop a new Web site for the City of Cupertino, California, the New York-based i-shop said Tuesday.

Razorfish was awarded the assignment following a competitive bid process that included five other undisclosed agencies. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

The updated site (http://www.cupertino.org/), expected to launch in the fall, will include municipal applications, as well as information and guidance on city policies for residents, vendors and city workers.

In redesigning the site, the city aims to make services available beyond normal business hours and to streamline processes, such as applying for business licenses and permitting, said city manager David Knapp. The contract will be serviced out of Razorfish’s San Francisco office.

This is the second government contract Razorfish has won in a month. Last month, the interactive agency was awarded a multi-year contract worth up to $3 million from the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power [IQ Daily Briefing, July 18].
