Technical Specification Development

Project Details

What We Need
  • A written document that clearly translates a specific organizational or business need into the technical work required to achieve it
What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a user manual created by the designer of the database, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have the existing database, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $7,802 , allowing us to get this project started. We would not be able to think about taking this step without this support.

We currently have a database that a former employee created in Access, however it crashed a year ago and has not been reliable since. We had someone take a look at it and they suggested we start from scratch, but that Access would still be appropriate for our needs. We do not have the technical ability to convey our needs to someone who could take on the creation of a new database.

Project Plan

Prep: Define Technical Request
  • Professional works with Volunteer Manager to discuss the organizational/business need
  • Volunteer Manager provides any existing technical documentation about the system (if available)
Milestone 1: Draft
  • Professional provides a draft of the technical specification document (e.g., a set of user stories and functional acceptance criteria)
  • Volunteer Manager provides feedback to Professional's technical specification
Milestone 2: Final Technical Spec
  • Professional delivers a final technical specification
  • Optional: Professional provides recommendation on resources to implement technical specification

Our Mission

Answer is a national organization that provides and promotes unfettered access to comprehensive sexuality education for young people and the adults who teach them.


Miroslaw was awesome to work with. As the project manager on this, I knew what our database needs were as an organization, but did not have the technical knowledge of products that were available to meet our needs. Miroslaw listened to our needs and then worked with me to look at the resources available to us, and provided a range of options that would work for our organization. The work he has helped us complete has saved the organization thousands or dollars and will certainly help us increase the capacity of our organization. I can not thank him enough!
