BACKGROUND

FHI Solutions is establishing a Center for Dietary Intake Assessment (hereafter referred to as the “Center”).  The goal of the Center is to help improve the nutritional status of vulnerable populations in low-and middle-income countries by increasing the availability and use of reliable dietary intake data.  The Center’s specific objectives are to:

  • Provide technical assistance to governments, survey implementers, and civil society organizations (CSOs) for collecting, analyzing, and using dietary intake data for evidence-based decision making
  • Develop an overall composite indicator of diet quality and at least two simple metrics to assess different domains of diet quality
  • Develop a set of metrics to assess and track the cost and affordability of a nutritious diet by region and at a national level; and
  • Expand and diversify Center funding to demonstrate cross-donor buy-in and foster sustainability

OBJECTIVE

The Center is currently seeking a firm to design and develop the Center’s logo identity (‘branding’); and design and develop the Center’s website.

The Center’s logo identity will be used on all products and publications created by the Center. As the Center aims to have global reach and a unique identity, the logo identity designed for the Center should be memorable, recognizable, and cross-culturally appropriate and relevant.

The Center’s website will host information about the Center; and guidance, tools, and publications related to dietary intake assessment for user-download. The main target audiences for the website are researchers and nutrition and development implementers. The website interface should be user-friendly and intuitive, and responsive and adaptive to the user, device and type of interaction. The website to be developed should be compatible for use with popular browsers: Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Chrome, support multimedia content on the website (e.g., video, animation page, audio, flash, etc.), and include a search engine function for the user to search webpages and uploaded files on the website. The website should also be able to be easily upgraded to add new features in the future, should have the most up to date security system with the ability to backup data regularly, and should be able to be hyperlinked easily to and by other websites.
