Legal Agenda is seeking to commission a team to conduct Web Development services for its new Parliament Observatory Website.

The “Web Development Services” are intended to cover software design development services, including analysis of requirements, design, development, testing and project management. As part of the assignment the team will also be required to provide a 2-year maintenance agreement.

The parliamentary observatory website aims to act as a main watchdog hub of the Lebanese parliament. It will publish both quantitative and qualitative data on the work of the Lebanese parliament, its members, its legislative process, and the legal texts being discussed. It will provide information on the activity of Individual Members of Parliament, Political Blocs, Parties, Parliamentary Commissions, General Assembly, and the Parliament Bureau and report on their legislative, representative, and control activity. It will also provide information and commentaries on the draft laws being discussed or passed. 

The platform will include a document and workflow management system which allows content creators to capture the full legislative process, from the submission of a draft law or a law proposal to the parliament to tracking the various discussions about it in parliamentary commission meetings, tracking its amendments, and its passing or dropping by the general assembly. 

The website will allow different users, such as regular citizens interested to hold their representative accountable as well as researchers and civil society organizations to be updated on the work of the parliament to enable them to evaluate it and engage with it. It will allow Legal Agenda’s research team to track the work of the parliament and continuously develop reports on it.
