Switzerland: RFP: Microsite development project

 FULL TIME, Informatica, Recursos Humanos  Comments Off on Switzerland: RFP: Microsite development project
Mar 202018

Organization: Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre
Country: Switzerland
Closing date: 23 Mar 2018

Background IDMC

The Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre (IDMC) of the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) is the global leader in the provision of data, information and analysis on internal displacement. IDMC monitors all situations of internal displacement, providing estimates of the numbers of IDPs worldwide, and develops research and analysis which seeks to better inform policy and operational decisions that affect the lives of internally displaced people.

Background Global Report on Internal Displacement

Since 1998, IDMC’s annual global reports on internal displacement have been an established reference for decision-makers and practitioners seeking an overview of policy-relevant evidence, trends and analysis. In 2016, IDMC released its first single annual global report that brought together data, evidence and analysis on displacement in the context of conflicts and disasters. The third iteration will be launched in May 2018.

Overall objective

IDMC wants to build on the success of last year’s microsite, which can be seen at The agency/contractor will ideally further develop the current solution (the source code of the existing microsite will be made available to the successful applicant) with new design and additional functionalities. The layout will mostly stay the same, we are therefore looking for someone to update the design and implement new interactive features to provide a consistent and integrated experience showcasing the Global Report, and linking to data and information on the IDMC website where appropriate. The agency/contractor can opt for creating a new technical solution based on the current layout and not reuse the existing code, however IDMC will not bear any cost of the extra programming work associated with it. We would like the microsite to be dynamic and eye catching. It should feature the key content provided by IDMC, in a way, which engages the audience, and illustrates the broader phenomenon of internal displacement and the associated challenges. The overall structure should be user friendly and intuitive to both expert audience and the general public. Branding guidelines will be provided. IDMC will provide all the materials for the website including PDF, media pack texts, photos, infographics, graphs and core content for the landing page.

Technical details

The current microsite is coded in HTML5 with the help of jQuery and some small JS libraries. Maps and graphs are coded in SVG to ensure interactivity.


  • Engaging and immersive experience
  • User friendly and intuitive structure
  • Increased integration with the main IDMC website
  • Increased shareability on social media
  • Using responsive technology to ensure good viewing experience on all devices

Organization: Geneva Centre for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces
Country: Switzerland
Closing date: 05 Apr 2018

The Geneva Centre for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces (DCAF) is dedicated to making people and the states they live in more secure. We help countries to develop sound laws, institutions, policies and practices that improve the way the security sector is governed. Good security sector governance – rooted in respect for human rights and the rule of law – is a cornerstone of security and development.

DCAF is a leading global centre of excellence for security sector governance (SSG) and security sector reform (SSR) knowledge and practice. Headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, we operate in over 70 countries and have a team of more than 170 international staff.

DCAF’s International Security Sector Advisory Team (ISSAT) provides practical support to the international community in its efforts to improve security and justice, primarily in conflict-affected and fragile states. Established in 2008, it works to increase the capacity of the international community to support SSR processes, to enhance the effectiveness and quality of SSR programming, and to facilitate the coordination and coherence of international assistance for nationally driven SSR processes.

We are a dynamic team working with, and across, world-leading government departments, multilateral institutions and experts in the international security and justice sector development arena. You will compliment an experienced, values-driven professional group from a broad variety of backgrounds.

It is a demanding role with advocacy and outreach aspects to wide-ranging high-level departmental contacts within donor states, their staff overseas, international organisations and partner nations.

DCAF-ISSAT SSROs are part of an in-house network called the “methodology cell”. This body is set up to contribute to the methodological development of DCAF-ISSAT’s mandates and use DCAF-ISSAT’s operational experience to update DACF-ISSAT’s approaches, produce knowledge products and tools and share with the wider community of SSR practitioners.

Reporting to the Head of Advisory Field Support (AFS), the SSRO will work in relation to DCAF-ISSAT’s mandates as well as other activities across all of the service lines.

Key areas of operation:
