The Township’s website requires redesign and upgrades to bring it into compliance with AODA Accessibility Standards and to allow for simple access by the public to enhance delivery and awareness of public services. In addition to website redesign, it would be desirable to enable the public to access resources through a dedicated Township “app”.
The Township has identified certain components as mandatory and Bidders must at a minimum provide a proposal that would include the following:
a. Website design, development, graphics design and layout
b. Website must comply in full with the regulations set out in the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA WCAG 2.0 Level AA)
c. Website must be mobile friendly (responsive) so that mobile users have relatively the same overall experience as desktop users
d. Development of a Township mobile “app”
e. Ability to manage all pages within the site in house by non-technical staff
f. Event calendar for municipal and community events
g. News management module (ex. Newsfeed/Announcements), with the ability for the public to “subscribe” to newsfeed and other municipal information, either through the website and/or “app”
h. Website must provide full content search capabilities
i. Website and App must provide ability to capture and report on usage statistics
j. Content migration from the old website to the new website
k. Compatibility with third party tools such as: agenda/meeting management (eScribe), facility registration/bookings/rentals (Bookking), public service requests (Citywide), burn permits (ec.burnpermits.com)
l. Product must be supported by full product support and maintenance following website and app development and go-live date
m. On-going software maintenance including, but not limited to product updates, bug fixes, and any other related issues (could form part of potential annual service agreement contract)
n. Training must be provided to the relevant Township staff
o. All email notifications which originate from the proposed website must comply in full with the regulations set out in the Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL)
p. Ability to easily build and issue forms on the Township website for items such as, but not limited to: permits, licenses, registration, inquiries, comments/complaints, etc.
q. Ability to employ online applications with secure forms which can be completed/submitted online with ability to e-file
r. Ability to provide simple online payments for services, such as building permits, various licenses, dog tags, transfer station/dump cards, registration for recreation programs, possibly a shopping cart function
s. Integrate a business/tourism directory from other organizations
t. Merge predetermined data from the current www.twpec.ca site to the new site to avoid the loss of information.
