Without knowing the particulars, it's impossible for me to speculate as to how much time and how many resources you need. I can say this: Engage an independent systems consultant with no vested interest in the outcome to appropriately scope your project vis-à-vis time, human resources and budget. Relying on internal folks alone runs the risks of biases affecting assessments and, ultimately, the likelihood of your project being successful.
