Project Description

The CAC is committed to delivering a number of initiatives in response to COVID-19. These are intended to support partners in the coaching community and directly target system/service/delivery improvements in light of the pandemic. The solution being sought in this RFP is intended to facilitate the CAC in achieving a future in which our audiences can access learning from their mobile devices and have a truly seamless experience when engaging with CAC technology platforms

One of our secure https connection (TLS) digital properties, called "the Locker," is neither mobile nor WCAG AA accessible. May 1 to August 31, 2020, the Locker was accessed by devices as follows: 73% desktop, 25% mobile phone, 2% tablet. Users, on average, visit the Locker 1,420 times/day, 9,801 times/week, 43,288 times per month. The Locker needs to be mobile- and user-friendly. Another of our digital properties,, was re-branded March 2020. and the Locker need a consistent look-and-feel, navigation, Ux across all devices; specifically, desktop, mobile phone and tablet.

The project does not include any changes to the Database, which is the "brain" of the Locker. Re-skinning of the front-end is to be done in the Locker’s "development" (sandbox) site so that the "production" site is uninterrupted during the project.
