I'm not understanding what you want from us?

Are you here for assistance on how to accomplish the task?

Are you here to get an ego boost or something before you start?

Are you just here to gloat that you got a 20 dollar an hour internship?

What do you want?

I guess I'm looking for the answer to a question, if you wanted to hire some programmers to write this kind of project how many would you hire and how much time would you give them?

See that's a radically different set of parameters than the ones presented...

Outside of knowing important factors like the specs of "best practices according to this company" the more interesting question is if you are the actual intern who is having a few doubts about being ground under the heel of being cheap labor, or if you are the guy that hired and intern to do this and are now having a few doubts on trying to roll a sweet deal for cheap.

Because I am feeling saucy.

One developer, 6 month contract for 75,000$

That's for no maintenance work or fixes after the fact.

I actually go to a college where the primary research focus of many of the professors is static analysis. They are getting large grants from companies, foundations, and agencies to find ways to write programs that determine if programs will behave as expected. That is, there are are major problems in the field of static analysis that people are spending a lot of money on to solve. Depending on the situation it's not only hard but so hard that as of yet no one may have done it. That said many things have been done and are easier.
