The OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) assists the 57 OSCE participating States in the implementation of their human dimension commitments, including in areas of democracy, rule of law, human rights and tolerance and non-discrimination. (Further details of the organization can be found at www.osce.org/odihr.)
The OSCE participating States review and discuss the application of their commitments in the human dimension of security at annual meetings called human dimension meetings. There are three types of meetings:
HUMAN DIMENSION IMPLEMENTATION MEETING (HDIM) which is organized in Warsaw, once a year, for two weeks.
SUPPLEMENTARY HUMAN DIMENSION MEETINGS (SHDMs) which are informal meetings organized by the OSCE Chairmanship-in-Office with assistance from ODIHR, in co-operation with other OSCE institutions and executive structures as appropriate.
HUMAN DIMENSION SEMINAR (HDS), organized in Warsaw by ODIHR under the guidance of the OSCE Chairmanship.
Every year, up to 2000 people participate in the meetings and they also organize more than 100 side events on the margins of the meetings. To participate, they need to register through an ODIHR online self-registration system. They also book side events through this system. However, the system was created more than 15 years ago; since then, the number of participants has grown more than four times. Nowadays, the system does not meet expectations anymore and it needs to be modernized.
The objectives of the assignment are: to evaluate the current registration system and the needs of its users (the organizers and some participants); to prepare the Terms of Reference and help to choose a developer of a new system in 2018.
The Consultant will evaluate the system (including by consulting different stakeholders and users, under the guidance of ODIHR) and, based on this evaluation, will prepare specific technical criteria for the database procurement process, identifying potential software solutions, assisting in answering technical questions by potential vendors, and contributing to the technical evaluation of the vendors. In addition, upon request, the Consultant will review the work completed by the vendor in developing the database.
