Community legal clinics from across Ontario have applied to Legal Aid Ontario for funding to develop a shared “back-end” or content management system (CMS) to support the development of public individual clinic or regional clinic websites. This system will enable the development of up to 70 individual, customized websites for each clinic as well as the deployment of a set of shared online tools and taxonomies to help users find out about clinic services, gain access to dynamically delivered public legal education and information, get referral information to other agencies and services in their communities, participate in community development initiatives and law reform campaigns, and collaborate and connect via social media.
As the legal clinic managing this project, CLEO (Community Legal Education Ontario / Éducation juridique communautaire Ontario) is issuing a Request for Information & Estimate (RFIE) in order to invite vendors and developers to submit recommendations for a secure, scalable, robust, and cost-effective CMS as well as estimates for technical development, and hosting.
