    Description of Work :

    The International Joint Commission (IJC) is looking to redevelop its corporate website ( and associated board sites as a single web site built on Drupal open source CMS.

    As part of this project the IJC requires the following deliverables:

    1. Wireframes and Visual Design Concepts
      Design and implement a new look and feel for the IJC website. This process must include development of wireframes for all key page types and up to 4 rounds of revisions. The design process must incorporate presentation of 3 distinct visual design concepts (mock-ups) with up to 3 rounds of revisions. The IJC does not currently have a graphic style guide in place.
      Note that unsolicited proposals for rebranding will not be considered as part of this RFP process and your proposal must assume that no rebranding will take place.

    2. Website development and deployment
      Complete rebuild, content migration and launch of the new website. See requirements in this document and the attached Information Architecture. The IJC will only be able to handle limited content migration and thus the successful proponent will need to migrate content to the new site as part of this project.

    3. Training, ongoing maintenance and support
      The successful bidder must provide a minimum of 12 months of support from the date of launch. This must include 2 onsite training sessions for staff and ongoing support and maintenance for all module updates and patches to the CMS.

    4. Recommendation on Hosting
      The successful bidder will include recommendations on hosting that includes ongoing security and software updates and a proactive approach to server maintenance. There is a desire from the IJC IT team for the site to be hosted on a Windows environment to facilitate maintaining the hosting environment as necessary. The IJC will entertain hosting on other environments provided that concerns regarding access and maintenance are addressed.

      1. There is no requirement for the hosting to be maintained in Canada. 

      2. The recommendation on hosting must include costs for all related costs for annual hosting of the IJC website for the next five years.

    Other sites, that are not part of the scope of this project but that should be considered for migration into the site in the future, and onto a common hosting environment:
