Think this was meant for the list.

Don't forget support costs, or it'll be the bane of your life.

My thought would be to check what the going rate for contractors are in your area, then add
up how long it took to develop.

Contractor-cost * hours-to-build = "What it would cost them to build themselves".

Charge less than or equal to the above.

my gut reaction would be to pretend to be a local authority and
call around asking for quotes. Then put in a realistic figure based on that.
In my experience, it's not worth lowering your price toensure the deal, 
because purchasing managers tend to be suspicious of low estimates.
