This Request for Information (RFI) seeks ideas to help the City of Seattle validate its business requirements, approach, and priorities for a public-facing (open) data platform which can meet functional requirements across one or more of the following public-facing city initiatives, with a primary focus on Open Data:
- Open data
- Performance management
- Open budget
- Capital projects exploration
The four initiatives served by the open data platform(s) are public facing in nature, therefore information provided by vendors should focus on public facing aspects of solutions.
A successful product or service match will reflect a set of data management and publication functions articulated by the project team (high-level requirements and “nice to have” elements are listed below). We want users within the City to have easy access to publish and manage datasets, and public data consumers to be able to easily discover, retrieve, analyze, and leverage the City’s most relevant and valuable data. The City of Seattle’s Open Data program strives to provide a “single front door” for consumers to discover and access the city’s data; therefore, the City will prioritize solutions that emphasize a comprehensive strategy to encompass data requirements across the four business drivers (open data, open budget, capital projects, and performance). The ideal solution would provide access to these four areas through a single web page at data.seattle.gov, but also provide capability to direct seattle.gov subdomains to individual components or ‘subsites’ (i.e. data.seattle.gov, openbudget.seattle.gov, performance.seattle.gov, and capitalprojects.seattle.gov).
The City of Seattle emphasizes all-inclusiveness as an important success factor for this public-facing software application. For that reason, we seek public-facing data management solutions with accessibility features such as multiple language support, and products that have been implemented in a government, local government or similar setting where race and social justice soft requirements are stressed. Please include examples of your product implementations in a local governmental or other multi-cultural environment and indicate which features support accessibility and a culturally diverse user group.
