Work to be done

The unit is running a number of websites developed in different technologies (such as NET, Joomla, DNN) and need to develop others.

The websites to be migrated to Drupal are hosting a mix of text (HTML) structured information pages, news and events, document libraries (PDF, embedded video, pictures), custom search forms to perform database queries to display data.
