The Pharmaceutical Management Agency of New Zealand (Pharmac) is accepting Expressions of Interest (EOI) from potential partners that can help implement and develop its web strategy, as well as prepare a plan to align its website and sub-sites to the strategy.
Pharmac’s current website was launched in 2008. The future partner will facilitate the development of a web services strategy that supports Pharmac’s operational strategies, as well as assist with the creation of a checklist to review compliance of all of Pharmac’s websites against the e-Govt web standards, digital preservation strategy, and Public Records Act, along with other sector recommendations.
The ability to create web strategies for complex domains and an understanding of current web technologies are key criteria for the selection of a new partner, along with an understanding of the government and health Sector that Pharmac works in, its strategic direction and responsibilities.
Companies interested in submitting an EOI should do so by 5pm of 29 November, after which date Pharmac will send Request for Proposals (RFP) to those who meet the criteria.
Each company can submit more than one proposal but all proposals will be reviewed individually.
Pharmac’s board or chief executive will consider the provisional agreement in or after February 2011.
