Grenfell Tower Inquiry looks for help to build more user-friendly website

David Bicknell Published 09 October 2017

Inquiry hopes to have beta version ready by Christmas, with site to be launched in mid-January


The Grenfell Tower Inquiry is looking for a new build of the current Inquiry’s website with the goal of a launch by mid-January next year. The site will also require the provision of training and ongoing maintenance until the close of the Inquiry.

A new version of the website, , is needed because the site needs to be more user friendly and hold more information than the current temporary WordPress site. The Inquiry, which is sponsored by the Cabinet Office, needs to have a beta version ready before Christmas 2017.

The details of the work have been listed on the Digital Outcomes and Specialists Marketplace . The latest start date is expected to be November 6 this year, running to February next year, with ongoing maintenance continuing until June 2019. Inquiry team members will also need training on the day-to-day running of the site. 

Technical requirements for the site include a full content management system to allow editing by the Grenfell Tower Inquiry team; good search engine optimisation; and a well-ordered mark-up, with heading tags in a logical structure, and up-to-date HTML5 tags used.

Other requirements are an insights checker; HTTPS required; functionality across mobile, tablet and widescreen; and the ability to work in all major browsers including desktop (Chrome/Firefox/IE/Edge on OSX and Windows) and mobile (iOS, Android, Windows Mobile, Blackberry). The supplier will need to host the website and it will need to be a UK server, the opportunity page states.

The anticipated traffic for the site is expected to be similar to the Leveson Inquiry website that received around 1.8m hits from 652k unique visitors between November 2011 and October 2012.
