Objectives and Key Deliverables
I am seeking an expert who could replicate the ADP Employment Index Report. Instead of using payroll data, the Index that my client seeks to create is based on tax transactions in the US. There are still a lot of unknowns at this point and I do not have access to a sample data file. My client is a software solution provider. What their software does are automated computations of tax. They work with SMB's and also enterprise-sized clients.
At this point, I am still gathering various avenues to get this project done as the work is in proposal stage. Ultimately I need some rough estimates on how much a project like this would cost.
The client wants to use this report to promote themselves as a thought leader in automated tax computations. The output will be used for external communications/publicity.
A full Tax Transaction Index report.
Needs to be a data mining/analysis expert with experience in handling financial transactional data. The data file to be mined will be tax transaction data coming from users of their software.
Background in actuarial sciences, accounting, economics.
I am needing an estimate from you as I nor my client have no idea how much a project like this would cost. Also, please tell me what you need from me (sample data file?) in order to give me an accurate project cost. For now, I will put in tentative estimates in the project duration and estimated budget just so I could submit this request.
