Call for services: FoodE website development and maintenance

01 February 2021

Scope of the assignment

For the assignment (2020-2024), the service provider will be asked to:

1) Design a web infrastructure (e.g. Drupal, WordPress) that can be easily managed by the FoodE consortium (e.g. creating new sections, uploading contents (news, blogs, videos, images, files - e.g. .pdf);

2) Design a website which is appealing and dynamic, in line with the visual identity of the project. Such a website is expected to deliver the same look and feel as the current website: foode.eu. The website will have to be operational and work seamlessly regardless of the web browser and should also be user friendly on a mobile phone. The website provider also has to take into account that an app (either a browser-based or computer-based app) will be developed in the context of the project (out of the scope of this assignment), and that a certain integration might be required with the website over the coming years. 

3) Ensure the liaison with the current website owner for transferring the web domain and the DNS server;

4) Provide regular technical support for ensuring the maintenance of the website and fix technical issues that may arise.

The above list should not be considered exhaustive, as the FoodE consortium reserves the right to request additional services to the service provider. Under such cases, the service provider will be invited to provide additional quotations.
