Contact: Vanessa Blais, Project Assistant
The New Hampshire Council on Developmental Disabilities is dedicated to “dignity, full rights of citizenship, cultural diversity, equal opportunities, and full participation for all New Hampshire citizens with developmental disabilities.” To achieve its mission, the Council continually assesses the needs and challenges facing NH citizens with developmental disabilities. Based on this information, the Council develops and implements a Five-Year Plan aimed at better providing the support services and opportunities that individuals with disabilities need to succeed.
The Council builds coalitions to make the necessary improvements. It also strives to give citizens with developmental disabilities a strong voice and role in crafting policies that affect them. Additionally, the Council focuses on increasing the effectiveness and availability of the specific services that people with disabilities need to strengthen their abilities and bring out their gifts.
New Hampshire Council on Developmental Disabilities is issuing a request for proposal (RFP) to identify a contractor to plan and execute, in collaboration with the NHCDD staff, a website redesign for the NHCDD website (www.ndcdd.org). Work should focus on template customization to fit our organization’s information architecture. NHCDD staff will provide content for all website pages.
The primary purpose of the NHCDD website is to facilitate and promote our work, provide resources for the community at-large, to inform and activate the disability community, and to add to the state-wide dialog on disability issues.
NHCDD.org is a content-rich site, therefore intuitive navigation and text handling is critically important. Navigation/linkage must be obvious and clear. We are looking for a company that can demonstrate expertise in working with agencies like ours and in delivering successful website projects that meet and exceed W3C accessibility standards.
