Wyong Shire Council on the NSW Central Coast is seeking to replace its existing Web content management system with something it can manage in-house.
“Council is seeking offers for the supply of a content management system that will enable them to manage their council website in-house,” according to the council.
Among the services required to implement the solution are a CMS installation, support, “the setup of a range of standard templates” and training for 10 to 15 council staff.
The project is expected to begin on September 30, 2009.
Also on the council’s procurement radar is the technology infrastructure to run the new Web site.
“Vendors must make an assessment of the hardware capacity required to support the entire solution, including interfaces to external products; data and application storage requirements; [and] necessary communications and operations environment incorporating backup, data transfer, and housekeeping functions,” according to the council.
Suppliers must also provide details of the operating system environment required for the CMS.
Wyong Council has identified about 60 features it requires of the new CMS, including an events calendar, page archiving and keyword search.
