The Clerk of the House of Representatives is seeking information on behalf of the Parliamentary Service about a replacement web content management system. It may then release a formal Request for Proposal Document. According to the RFI, The Office of the Clerk and the Parliamentary Service launched the parliament.nz website and ourhouse.parliament.nz intranet in 2006. It says the websites have evolved to meet stakeholder requirements since launch and there has been ongoing development of the application layers to create tools such as online submissions and alerting. The current CMS is Microsoft Content Management Server 2002, and this has reached end of life, is no longer fully supported by Microsoft and represents a business risk, says the Office of the Clerk in the RFI. The document says Parliament wants to add CMS functionality that has emerged in the past eight years and upgrade to software that reduces the need for custom development. It anticipates a selected supplier would replace the CMS and any other required software, review the website architecture, migrate data, alter templates and CSS, optimise search and offer ongoing design and development. The RFI closes on 15 December.
