The City of Philadelphia’s open data team is looking for a great communicator to take the extensive research we’ve done and turn it into a professional report/strategic plan that’s easy to digest for the average citizen. For an example of what we mean, take a look at the Greenworks Report or the OIG Report.
We have already performed research, drawn conclusions, received input from other sources, and drafted an outline. We would like assistance drafting the text, making it easier to understand for general audiences, and producing charts or visualizations where appropriate to illustrate key points. Ideally, this partner would know how to word things in a way that is sensitive to our various groups of stakeholders.
The outline we have is 2 pages, and it pertains to (1) What we’ve done, (2) What we’ve learnt, (3) Our research, and (4) Our new strategy. As to the length of the document, we’re hoping this partner can help us determine the ideal length, containing enough information but slim enough that it will be read.
We would like to have this document ready to publish by mid-August (though the sooner the better). We’re hoping that the work we’ve already done will make this a reasonable timeline.
Proposals need not be more than 1-2 pages, and can use the following template:
- Company name
- Location of company
- A few links to samples of similar work performed by the company (where you drafted the text)
- Approximate time it would take to deliver based on this project description (range is okay)
- Cost proposal, ideally with pricing options (ie. the amount of graphic design, the option to reach out to stakeholders for more input, the option to get it done quicker, etc.)
Please send proposals, including work samples, to Tim Wisniewski, Chief Data Officer, at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Monday, July 28th at 12:00 PM EDT (noon).
