HiQ wins procurement of web agency for UKÄ

HiQ wins the Swedish Higher Education Authority (UKÄ) procurement of a web agency for digital communication services.

- It's great that HiQ wins UKÄ's procurement. This shows HiQ's breadth and expertise in various segments and that we are a strong partner as a web agency in government operations. Fantastic team effort from the team who worked on this, says Sven Ivar Mørch, CEO of HiQ.

UKÄ is an independent government agency in the higher education area, located in Stockholm. It is responsible for quality assurance, efficiency review, follow-up, supervision and developing management in the higher education sector. The vision is for the organization to contribute to strengthening Sweden as a knowledge society.

UKÄ needs a strategic and innovative partner who works proactively with the development of their digital communication and who can deliver digital services with the highest quality and accessibility in close collaboration. They want a modern and creative web agency with good experience in working with government operations and that puts UKÄ's needs first. The website and digital services must comply with the law on accessibility to digital public service.

The procurement includes production, management and development of UKÄ's existing website with associated technical solutions as well as digital communication for the web and other digital communication. The procurement also includes the analysis and accessibility services used on the website (eg Google Analytics, Solr and Readspeaker). The assignment also pertains to overall advice, support and guidance as well as the possible development of new digital services.

– We are building the Nordic region's best web agency and I would like to extend a warm welcome to UKÄ. Web, innovation and digital services for the public sector with high demands on accessibility are areas we at HiQ are incredibly strong in, and that is growing, says Linda Woxneborn, Head of Design, Innovation & Communication at HiQ.

The framework agreement applies from the time of signing the agreement and for two years with the possibility for UKÄ to extend the framework agreement by one + one year, for a maximum of up to four years.
