With a new name perhaps on the way and a new focus for delivering education to the region part of the future, officials at Northwest Community College are about to turn their attention towards the college website.

NWCC recently posted a Request for Proposal for website developers to review, with the college noting that the current website no longer fulfills their needs. Particularly in areas of functionality, navigation, design and display of digital assets.

Those with a talent for website design will want to make note of some of the key elements required for the new website.

Among some of the key expressions, or positioning statements that NWCC wants to stress for their new online portal are:

Broaden your horizon
elevated experiences
free your mind
enable adventurous minds
open minds, open spaces
unbound education
the path forward
wide-open learning

The website design will also be required to deliver some of the following:

Well organized and easy to navigate
Effective menu and search functions
Ability to scan and find information at a glance
Mobile friendly, responsive design

The design should also promote and drive an audience to new, relevant information available on the site.

The full request for bids can be reviewed from the BC Bid website.

The deadline for interested web designers to apply is October 13th.

The college is also seeking the services of an auditor to provide for the audited statements that are required to be delivered by the College, details for that contract are also available on the BC Bid site.
