Terms of Reference

The secretariat of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) is seeking a qualified vendor who can provide the following consulting services:

    1. Assessment of the current state of the information management environment against best practice;
    2. Develop strategies for the management of both structured and unstructured content across the organization, leveraging existing technology and tools where appropriate;
    3. Develop a roadmap for the implementation of recommendations, covering both short-term and longer-term plans for moving forward with improvements in managing information.

It is intended to set up a project creating the specification of decision rights and an accountability framework to encourage desirable behaviour in the valuation, creation, storage, use, archival and deletion of information. It shall include the governance structures, processes, roles, taxonomy, and business classification schemes, standards and metrics that ensure the effective and efficient use of information in enabling the organization to achieve its goals.

Detailed specifications will be provided as part of the Request for Proposal, which will be issued after the closing date of this request for EOI.

The EOI should include a description of the company profile and details of relevant experience. However, such description shall be limited to 1-2 pages length. Please do not include copies of certifications at this stage. EOIs that do not contain the information requested for evaluation by UNFCCC may be rejected.

We kindly request vendors who are interested in responding to this EOI but have not yet submitted a vendor registration form to UNFCCC, to complete the vendor registration form which can be accessed at: http://unfccc.int/secretariat/procurement/award_procedure/vendor_registration/items/2645.php

This notice is posted for information only and does not constitute an invitation to bid or submit a proposal. The UNFCCC reserves the right to change or cancel these requirements at any time in the EOI and/or solicitation process. The UNFCCC Procurement and General Services Unit considers a vendor’s qualifications and experience in the particular commodity/service area, and previous performance, when preparing a list of invitees. Thus submitting an EOI does not automatically guarantee a vendor will be considered for receipt of the solicitation when issued.
