UN Mechanism for International Criminal Tribunals Seeks Consultancy Support

The United Nations Mechanism for International Criminal Tribunals (MICT) is seeking Expressions of Interest (EOI) from qualified vendors for Request for Proposal (RFP) it intends to issue for the provision of consultancy services to configure Records Manager 8 Software to function as a Unified Judicial Database. The vendor will also need to merge 2 separate sets of records into one dataset.


The MICT is the successor organisation of International Criminal Tribunal for former Yugoslavia (ICTY) and International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR). It was established by Security Council Resolution 1966 on 22 December 2010 to carry out a number of essential functions of the Tribunals following their closure. The MICT is mandated by the United Nations Security Council to be small and efficient. It requires, therefore, a system that is based, as far as possible, on commercial products with minimal customization and modest support requirements.

The goal is the establishment of a unified judicial database, which will contain the judicial records of both tribunals (plus a third set of records created by the Mechanism itself). HP Records Manager 8 has been chosen as the system for the unified judicial database. The ICTR's judicial records already exist as a single dataset in HP TRIM. The ICTY’s judicial records are in a separate database built internally, using Microsoft Windows Server files and security as the technical foundation.

The combined records will be stored and managed by HP Records Manager 8 software. The Records
Manager 8 needs to be configured to meet the requirements of the MICT, and the judicial records migrated into the system.

The response deadline has been extended to Monday, September 21, 2015. Click here to view and download the entire Expressions of Interest document.
