Description of Work:
TITLE: User Experience (UX) Services
The Communications and Public Affairs Branch (CPAB) at Health Canada (HC) is seeking to measure the effectiveness and efficiency with which Health Canada and the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) are delivering online health-related information and services to Canadians.
The performance of web content goes beyond analytics (quantitative research) and must be validated with real users through qualitative research methods as well. This can be achieved through User Experience (UX) research. Although some web content has been tested over the past years through the migration to Canada.ca, it is the best practice that user research be conducted on an ongoing basis to ensure web products meets the needs of its users. Under Appendix F: User-Centred Design, of the Standard on Web Usability, institutions are required to use research methods to validate that users can effectively and efficiently find, understand and use the information and services provided through websites.
Therefore, HC requires a contractor to provide UX services for selected Canada.ca health-related web content, to provide an analysis on how selected web content is performing and make recommendations to improve performance.
Task Authorizations (TA) will be issued against one (1) Service Outline Agreement to provide support to the Department’s Communications and Public Affairs Branch.
