CLOSING DATE AND TIME: DECEMBER 9, 2020 @ 3.00 PM US EST
The WBG is seeking to implement a new modern, robust, cloud-based Art Collection Management System (SaaS) that reflects the current industry standards and best practices in registering, managing, maintaining and publishing art collections both to the internal as well as external clients.
The World Bank Art Program contains over 7,000 objects in its collection. The collection is composed of emerging artist’s works from the WBG member countries. While WBG focuses their project work on the regions of Africa, East Asia and the Pacific, Europe and Central Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, Middle East and North Africa, and South Asia, many of the works also come from non-focus regions such as Japan, Australia and the United States. The works in the collection have arrived to WBG as acquisitions, donations, or long-term loans.
Each year, the World Bank Art Program is involved in acquiring new works, commissioning new pieces from emerging artists of the member countries, and lending works to other institutions for their continued exposure to large, diverse audiences. The World Bank Art Program estimates the acquisition of 25-30 new pieces each year, and the lending of over 100 pieces each year. Therefore, this requires a system that can maintain this capacity and is expandable for future growth.
The Art Collection Management system for WBG shall take into account the following:
· Must be a SaaS (Software as Service) solution
· Be able to host up to 10,000 objects including art collections with associated metadata.
· Object files should be able to accept images, audio, video and text files
· Transfer of data that is currently in WBG Art Collection in electronic form is included.
· Multiple users can access the system for data entry.
· Accessible from mobile devices.
· The system shall help maintain and streamline workflow in processing various collections.
· The system shall make the World Bank Art collection data easily accessible to the internal staff as well as to the public.
