I am an on-site contractor in Facility Management. I "inherited" an on-line work request project which was non-functional written in cold-fusion through an outside Web Development Company. Due to the time I needed to deliver and the budget having already been exhausted with the development company -- (and because I thought the attempt based on hours billed and deliverable was outrageous) I started over-- developed the flow clearly through Powerpoint on exactly how I wanted program to operate, right down to Categories, Q&A, routing, assigning, scheduling, status updates, viewing floor plans, closing and charging back, queries, etc. The functionality was designed, by an outside company using Dreamweaver / SQL and hosted on an offsite server. From a "design" perspective I have also spent time going in and working on format layout, design elements. Outside company focuses on functionality, leaves something to be desired on how it looks.
There is now talk of launching this to other locations, and even interest by other companies. Do I have any right of ownership? Of course, web development was not in my job description but was assigned as "Goal."
Thanks for any feedback/direction.
