Request for Proposal: Project Eagle Eye
Project Eagle Eye is a dashboard to help OPEN track the campaigns of organisations we work with. It will provide us with a birds eye view of the campaigns the groups are running, and how people interact with our groups socially. This will allow us to better spot learning opportunities, and spread information about campaigns that are working well for other groups.
The MVP contains three main components:
Data Scraper -- Collect engagement data (signature counts on petitions) from public API endpoints exposed by the online campaigning platforms in use. Also includes some social engagement data from the public pages/twitter accounts.
Admin -- An admin interface to allow tagging of above data. Try to infer/suggest tags based on content.
Dashboard -- A dashboard to allow sorting, searching, charting the above tagged and compiled data.

OPEN is a network of 20 organisations, each an independent, non-profit, nationally-based organisation working on multiple issues, but all sharing a common set of values and a general strategic orientation. Groups in the network tend to work on human rights, women's rights, climate change, economic fairness, strengthening democracy, and empowering individual people to lift their voices to make change in their community and their country.
We all conduct this activism using largely digital tools, like outreach on email and social media, common tactics like online petitions, calls to parliament, organising offline protests and actions, and volunteering in our communities. Read more about the network and our core organising DNA.
OPEN will consider proposals with budgets upto USD $10,000
