Request for Information: International Criminal Tribunal Seeks Digital Preservation System

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Supply of a system for the preservation and management of its digital archives in compliance with the Open Archival Information System (“OAIS”) framework, including maintenance thereof.
Client: United Nations Mechanism for International Criminal Tribunals
Location: The Netherlands
Date Issued: 18 December 2014
Closing Date: 10 January 2015

The Mechanism for International Criminal Tribunals (“MICT” or “the Mechanism”) is seeking information from potential vendors on current/existing commercial solutions, custom solutions, and other relevant information for the preservation and management of its digital archives in compliance with the Open Archival Information System (“OAIS”) framework.

This RFI is to determine solutions that meet this requirement and, if so: how the solution meets the requirement; what the capabilities and limitations of the solution are with respect to the five preservation functions of Ingest, Data Management, Storage, Access, Preservation Planning, Administration; what are the existing pricing models; and what are the models for support and maintenance.

The Mechanism is the successor of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (“ICTY”) and the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (“ICTR”). It was established by Security Council Resolution 1966 on 22 December 2010. It has two branches, in Arusha and The Hague, which began functioning on 1 July 2012 and 1 July 2013 respectively.

The ICTY and the ICTR were established in 1993 and 1994 respectively and have, over the last two decades, accumulated large quantities of both physical and digital records. These records document all aspects of the work of the Tribunals including, but not limited to: investigations, indictments and court proceedings, the detention of accused persons, the protection of witnesses, the enforcement of sentences and relationships with States, other law enforcement authorities, international and non-governmental organizations and the general public.

The Mechanism, which is to be a lean and efficient institution, is mandated to manage the archives of the ICTR, the ICTY, and the Mechanism itself, which collectively constitute the International Criminal Tribunals’ Archives (“Archives”). The Archives comprise physical and digital records which have been selected for long-term or permanent preservation.
