This is an invitation for proposals for the services of redesign, development and maintenance of the Rikolto web platform, including SEO optimisation, all done in line with the latest trends of the industry (design, tech, data protection).

1. Organisation profile

Rikolto is an international NGO with more than 40 years’ experience in partnering with farmer organisations and food chain stakeholders across Africa, Asia, Europe and Latin America. Rikolto runs programmes in 16 countries worldwide through seven regional offices. We’re a close-knit network of accessible and knowledgeable colleagues, willing to share experience and eager to inspire others.

2. Website functionalities

Rikolto has one web platform, underpinning all of our websites. Currently, our Content Management System is Drupal 7, which faces end of life soon. We are looking to build a new web platform. We are open to use any Content Management System that provides the following key functionalities and requirements.

For a detailed overview of all desired functionalities and design requirements, our website goals, target audience and hosting and maintenance expectations, please refer to the RFP attached below.

3. Budget and timeline

  • We expect the needs definition to be started up towards the end of 2021, and the full website development and launch to take place in the course of 2022. A detailed timing can be established in accordance with the selected party.
  • We foresee a budget of €35,000-45,000 (incl. VAT) for this assignment.

4. Submission of proposals

Please include in your proposal:

  1. Financial offer – Costs should include VAT;
  2. Explanation of methodology;
  3. Applied technologies (backend, frontend, hosting, caching,…)
  4. At least three references, or provide contact details;
  5. Agency portfolio with relevant work;
