Job Description

Please quote the cost and delivery time for you to provide electronic delivery of the following set of R deliverables, for use in the Amazon AWS EC2 instance type specified below:




1) Set of R command lines to successfully install the set of R libraries (aka packages) specified further below, to the AWS EC2 instance type specified further below.


2) Set of R command lines to successfully un-install that same set of R libraries (aka packages), to that same AWS EC2 instance type.


3) Optional item: Instructions for how one can do a rollback/cleanup (uninstall) of a particular R library (package) (without having to do something dramatic, like uninstall/reinstall R itself)


This set of deliverables (the items numbered above) is to be used for my copy-pasting these lines into R to install those libraries (packages) to R in an AWS EC2 instance (of the AWS EC2 instance type I have specified in this RFP, see further below) at the start of an instance, and (if optional item 3 is done) for my copy-pasting these lines into R to un-install those libraries (packages) from R in that AWS EC2 at the end of that instance.


I will test the command lines you provide in the AWS EC2 type, to confirm the install and un-install works with no errors or warnings.
