Government | OpenConcept Consulting Inc

Keywords: Content Management

OpenConcept has been working with Government and contributing to the development of Common Look and Feel (CLF) themes for Drupal since 2006. In 2008 we worked with Canada School of Public Service, Environment Canada, Public Works, and Government Services Canada, and Industry Canada. Currently, we have an ongoing relationship with Public Works to build them a prototype for their website as well as their online procurement system. All of these clients required a CLF 2.0 theme for their website.

We have made our theme available as a demonstration site and is also available by request. We are collecting other Drupal themes that have been developed for other government agencies and work to evaluate those both for CLF compliance as well as it's flexibility within Drupal. 

We have experience in migrating websites from both static html and from custom built content management systems. By implementing a Drupal solution we can make it easier for you to setup and maintain CMS compliance on all pages of your website. xHTML Strict validation can be implemented not only for the template, but also for the content as it is added to your site.

In many cases it will be both more secure and less costly if you migrate old content to Drupal than it would be to try to upgrade an older system to become CLF 2.0 compliant. We can help convert table-based layout to CSS and ensure that deprecated HTML is removed in the migration process. 

OpenConcept believes collaboration can achieve considerably better results for our clients. We provide a very flexible and scalable interface that can meet the requirements of the most demanding government applications.
