¿ Develop website content definitions, and production and contribution work-flows, to enable AEDP constituent teams to engage more fully with the website;
¿ Enable better technical and informational relationships with current AEDP resources e.g. CRM and ‘Self-Service’, so that users may be better supported on-line;
¿ Ensure that all public website interfaces and functionality are compliant with current legislation and good practice;
¿ Record and monitor KPIs;
¿ Review, re-author and develop new content, including jettisoning and changing the current content;
¿ Encourage AEDP content authors to adopt a 180 degree shift in their approach to writing for the website;
¿ Resolve current system performance issues, i.e. provides significant improvement in system performance;
