The National Conference of State Historic Preservation Officers (NCSHPO) is the professional association of the State government officials who carry out the national historic preservation program as delegates of the Secretary of the Interior pursuant to the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, as amended (NHPA) (16 USC 470). As part of its cooperative agreement with the National Park Service (NPS), NCSHPO is seeking an Independent Contractor (IC) to provide research, analysis and content development for updating and expanding shared content for public-facing webpages, in particular the NPS Tribes website: nps.gov/tribes and the Tribal Historic Preservation Program website: nps.gov/thpo. This work benefits the public by providing research, facilitation, and web design experience in a collaborative federal – tribal environment to meet the public needs of access to NPS tribal program information. The NPS will provide NPS web design guidelines and standards. The IC should be able to work independently, and communicate effectively with internal colleagues and external partners including tribal contacts.
Specific project tasks include:
· IC will facilitate planning and web workshops, and regular progress meetings with multiple offices and tribal partners to discuss web content needs and desired updates.
· IC will review content, analyze according to accepted web standards and make specific recommendations to update, reduce redundancy, and coordinate content between multiple public-facing websites. (Including relevant sites of the NPS Office of State, Tribal, Local Plans & Grants: nps.gov/stlpg.)
IC will review tribal-related content available on other Department of Interior Bureau websites to reduce redundancy and coordinate content. Sites may include the Native American programs of DOI Bureaus and Offices: https://www.doi.gov/bureaus
· IC will provide an outline of proposed updates, coordinate review by internal and external staff, and incorporate review comments into final plan.
· IC will write approved content and gather associated materials and permissions for planned update (may include photos, videos, graphics, curriculum or other associated content).
Remote work / telework are possible but some work in NPS office will be required. The project is estimated to require approximately 400 hours of work, and the expectation is that this work would be completed on a part-time basis over approximately 20 weeks.
Work must be completed by May 25, 2018.
The primary NPS office that will support and coordinate this work is the NPS Office of Tribal Relations and American Cultures, located in Washington, DC. For more information about the NPS Office of Tribal Relations and American Cultures, please visit: nps.gov/trac.
