Project Background.
In quarter one of 2020, The TIDE project embarked on development of the e-Dairy training platform to respond to improved access to quality training content to dairy farmers that were affected by the COVID 19 Pandemic that sabotaged the face-to-face interaction. The platform consists of 13 themes on dairy farming operations that are fully available for reading and downloading. Since January 2022 the platform was launched to be used by users and over 40,000 users have visited the platform. The platform can support users of 3 categories: Basic farmers, Lead farmers and Extension officers. All these are utilizing the platform according to their respective competencies.

Purpose of the Consultancy

Objectives

  • To maintain an up-to-date website that can be accessed by users whenever they need to access the site content.

  • To have timely responsive measures to address update requirements that would render the site inaccessible by users.


Justification

  • Since handover, the website has been promoted to several users especially to extension workers and several district local government production staff.

  • However, there has been more than two website unpredicted shutdowns due to missing background updates. This becomes an inconvenience to the users and depicts a bad picture about SNV who provided the product.

  • In addition, much as TIDE is closing in December 2023, ISDAP goes up to 2024 and uses the materials on the website to train farmers. Several users that have learned about the website are continuously using it and promoting it to other users. All this justifies the reason to keep the website running without interruption going forward.


Job Description

  • To keep the website www.e-dairytrainingmodules.africa running for the next one year(can be extended), regularly updating and fixing challenges that would lead to the shutdown of the same website.


Tasks and Deliverables

  • The assignment will be carried out through 2024 and will entail the following specific tasks:

  • Cloud backup of website on a weekly basis.

  • Recovery of website files from backups.

  • Website Uptime monitoring.

  • Onward payment of third-party costs like hosting and domain.

  • Regular security scans to identify and handle threats.

  • Updates to text, images, and other minor changes to the Client’s website pages.

  • Training of content management team.

  • Removal of malware, spam, and malicious code from the Client’s website.


Duration of the exercise

  • The Activity Contract will run from January - December 2024


Position

  • The successful service provider will report to the TIDE Project Manager and will work alongside the SNV Country IT Focal person who will work closely with the Livestock Extension and Training to understand the condition of the website in terms of consumers satisfaction.
