At the risk of taking this even further off topic: maybe it's just a 
question of bad nomenclature, but web strategies are a broad term that 
needs refining a lot more. If - as it used to be the case when I was web 
editor for a uni - this strategy covers external-facing marketing 
website(s), it should really be an extension of the overall marketing 
strategy (and outline how the marketing objectives would be met via the 
website). If it also needs to cover internal sites or even broad 
provision of IT for teaching and learning provisions, there's obviously 
further strategies that it needs to hang off. But in both cases, I 
actually found that discussions about web standards, accessibility, etc 
are best served by having separate web publication guidelines, and have 
the strategy simply refer to them.


IMHO, anyway,

Hi Andrew,

Just to clarify, considering that there are probably quite a few consultants
and agencies on this mailing list who would be interested in this work - are
you ok with them recommending themselves or submitting proposals etc? What
are you wanting out of this process?

Cheers,

Nathanael Boehm

 I suppose this is a bit off topic*, please bear with me, I make a
 habit of these oddball requests.

 We are (finally) looking to develop a new and comprehensive web
 strategy for our large and diverse university (unimelb).

 One immediate proviso is that the strategy should be developed by
 someone who is seen as an authority and is independent. Preferably an
 organisation with a track record - either here or overseas.

 Suggestions? Good/bad experiences?

 Please reply directly if you think it's not relevant to the list.

Yes, people are welcome to recommend themselves, however this is a big
organisation and it's going to be one hell of a piece of work.
Individuals are unlikely to get a call - established companies with a
track record are what we are looking for. It's just not one of those
things you can look up in the Yellow Pages :-)
