Freedom House seeks to develop and deliver a bespoke online Security Training Program for its staff worldwide.
Who we are and what we do can be found here: https://freedomhouse.org/about-us
SCOPE OF WORK
The program is to encompass:
• Security Risk Management – Basic Principles;
• Conducting Risk Assessments; and
• Travel Security.
A blended approach to the program is desired, incorporating the use of:
• Online activities; and
• Knowledge tests.
This program is intended to be developed in-line with the specific nuances of Freedom House as compared to other non-profits and therefore a generic approach to its content is to be avoided.
The program is to be developed in the form of a series of modules that can be accessed and competed by staff at-will.
These modules should be short in duration so that they can be accessed and completed by staff at opportune times. No single module should exceed one hour in length.
Each module should include record of completion that can be viewed by Freedom House for each participant and a certificate of completions is to be issued on completion of the program.
The contractor will report to Freedom House Security Management, being the Director of Security and the Global Security Manager.
Weekly meetings with Freedom House Security Management will be established to review progress and discuss proposed content.
No external agency content is to be included without prior written approval from that agency and from Freedom House Security Management.
DURATION OF THE WORK
Award of the contact is expected in early December 2022.
The final program is expected to be delivered within six months of date of award of contract.
PLACE OF ASSIGNMENT
The entirety of the contract can be completed remotely. No physical presence in Freedom House premises is required.
