Overview :

The South African government through the Department of Energy in collaboration with the Department of Trade and Industry (the dti), and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is implementing the appliance energy efficiency Standards and Labelling (S&L) Project. The project is designed with the objective of removing inefficient appliances from the South African market and to encourage the adoption of new minimum energy performance standards (MEPS) for energy efficient appliances. The project forms an integral part of the measures / interventions designed to reduce electricity consumption and the carbon footprint of the residential sector.

A comprehensive marketing and communications campaign has been planned to introduce the project to the South African consumer and public. The communication channels will include print, television, billboards, radio and advocacy. Research has found a S&L communication campaign to have the desired effect and achieve its objectives it must be supported by an informative and appropriately designed website. Visitors to the website must be able to find the information they are looking for in a format and a language that can be easily navigated and understood. All demographic groups buy appliances meaning that it is imperative that the website can appeal to all visitors and be able to hold their attention.

A website has already been designed and a content plan developed. This project has two objectives:

To review the existing design and content plan with the project manager, department of energy and any other stakeholders that the department may wish to include, to make changes (if necessary), produce the final content and launch the website. The consultancy is expected to build on what has already been developed

Build and maintain the website for a period of six months (until December 31, 2017). The vendor must then hand over control of the website to an entity to be decided by the department. The website url will be registered under and the vendor will be required to assist the department to secure the necessary permissions by satisfying requirements
