Request for Proposal (RFP) Girls in ICT 2022

The Utilities Regulation Competition Authority (URCA), in collaboration with its major licensees, intends to host its annual Girls in ICT Day (GIICT) on Thursday 28 April 2022.  The international event both celebrates and recognizes females in Information Communication Technology and promotes the sector to young women.

For more than a decade International Girls in ICT Day, an International Telecommunication Union (ITU) initiative, has been celebrated. To date, more than 170 countries have participated in GIICT Day with ITU Member States, Sector Members, Associates, Academia and other stakeholders all joining the global movement to engage an inspire girls to pursue careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) through trainings, information sharing, capacity building activities and role models.

For the past two years, the global Pandemic has transitioned GIICT Day into a virtual event here in The Bahamas. In 2022, plans are underway for a hybrid event that embraces the technological efficiencies of virtual sessions while also, hopefully, returning to the exciting and dynamic sessions that can be held in person.

The Utilities Regulation and Competition Authority (URCA) is seeking to engage a suitably qualified and experienced company to undertake the work associated with the creative interpretation, design and management of International Girls in ICT Day on behalf of URCA and its licensees on Thursday, 28 April 2022.

The scope of work includes but not limited to:

•            Event Development and Design

•            Audio and Visual production

•            Digital Branding, Marketing, /Public Relations activities

•            Coordination of virtual & in-person (tentative) events

•            Liaison with presenters and vendors

•            Vendor and services management

•            Post event Report

URCA is accepting proposals to manage this year’s event that is scheduled to begin at 9:00am and end at 2:00pm on 28 April 2022. It will include a welcome conference followed by a series of ICT related breakout sessions either virtually or in person (tentative).
