Request for Proposal: Website Development – Open Government Partnership


$s Published: . Tagged in open government partnership

The Open Government Partnership (OGP) has issued a Request For Proposals (RFP) for the development of its new website.

The full RFP can be downloaded in  PDF or WORD form.

Deadline for submission of proposals is 5pm EST on Wednesday, June 1, 2011.


The Open Government Partnership is a new multi-stakeholder coalition of leading governments and civil society organizations working to advance transparency and accountability in government – with the goals of securing concrete commitments from countries to increase the responsiveness of government to citizens, counter corruption, promote economic efficiencies, harness innovation and improve the delivery of services.


The website required is for OGP (  OGP seeks to inform visitors about how to participate in the OGP process, inspire visitors towards new and better practices by learning about the innovations and experiences of OGP participants, and enable an ongoing conversation among OGP collaborators (government officials, local and international civil society, the private sector, intergovernmental organizations) about the progress and challenges of OGP implementation at the country level.  The website is the main forum for communicating government commitments under OGP and for disseminating independent assessment reports intended to hold governments accountable for these commitments.   The website also informs the general public about OGP activities and serves as a connection point to citizen level resources around open government.

The OGP site must provide a credible, stable image that reflects the dual governmental and civil society nature of this initiative and the main audiences for this website.  Given OGP’s close connection to the open data/knowledge movements and the need to ‘practice what we preach’ the site must be built on an open source platform and reflect the values that OGP embodies (openness, transparency and responsiveness) at every opportunity. Open exchange among all OGP constituencies (governments, civil society, private sector and other) is a hallmark of the site.


Please submit response to The Transparency and Accountability Initiative by June 1, 2011 as follows: PDF to Julie McCarthy julie.mccarthy [at]
