Website Content Redesign RFP Development at UNESCO (open until filled). 250 views

A) Background

The UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS) has recently undergone a repositioning exercise that identified our target user segments and their respective needs. As a result, we are embarking on a project to redevelop our Web Presence consisting of the following main products;

  • Main Content Website
  • Online Data Browser
  • Programmatic Data Access

A concurrent project to develop a corporate Content Management System (CMS) is in progress at UNESCO Headquarters. The UIS will utilize this CMS to implement its Main Content Website. This includes working within the technical and design constraints of the UNESCO CMS infrastructure.

A Request For Information (RFI) activity to replace the current Online Data Browser with a SaaS implementation has returned several approaches to the future Online Data Browser need.

The UIS executed an API Assessment in 2019 to assess the match between the UIS SDMX API and its data consumers. Based on its findings and as a first response, a Bulk Data Download Service has been implemented that allows efficient and automated programmatic data access.

B) Tasks and Objectives:

This contract is for the development of a TOR that details the content redesign of our main website taking into account our repositioning and the constraints of the UNESCO CMS infrastructure (Drupal).

The TOR will ensure that both internal and external stakeholders are involved in the review process. Internal stakeholders will include UIS staff members, and external stakeholders will include current and potential UIS customers and/or data consumers. The resulting project will facilitate communication with stakeholders via telephone, email and in person meetings.

All deliverables will be presented to the project team as draft for review and feedback iterations until approved by the project team.
