NRC ICT: Tender for a solution to protect cloud data

Published 13. Oct 2021
The Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) requests proposals for a solution that mitigates risk of cloud data loss. The primary scope for this RFP is to protect data in a specific set of the Microsoft cloud services that NRC uses.

NRC is a humanitarian INGO established in 1946 and currently working in nearly 40 countries to aid those displaced by war and conflict. With nearly 8000 staff serving over 14 million people, NRC has ongoing strategic initiatives related to working in hard-to-reach areas as well as ambitious objectives to improve operations through digital transformation as well as to deliver assistance, where possible, by digital means.

The Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) is requesting proposals for a solution to mitigate the risk of loss of its cloud data.

While this is a broad ask, the primary scope for this request for proposals is to protect data in a specific set of the Microsoft cloud services that NRC uses.

NRC will consider it as a strength if the supplier’s solution can take on workloads beyond Microsoft cloud services but will at the same time make it clear that suppliers that strictly offer data protection solutions for Microsoft services are strongly encouraged to bid.

See this folder for the full RFP document, that has details about NRC’s requirements for a cloud data protection solution.

The RFP includes instructions for how to submit a proposal and outlines what to expect from NRC’s procurement process. Closing date for bids is midnight CET on 3 November 2021.
