London, 16 July 2015–The Quarterly Bulletin of Cocoa Statistics produced by ICCO is the most authoritative source of cocoa statistics in the world. The database of the Bulletin, built on Oracle Personal Express, captures data submitted by ICCO members and non-members from over a hundred countries and presents the data in a report or spreadsheet that facilitates the printing of the Bulletin.

The ICCO is seeking a qualified consultant or company to develop a new customized, computerized database management system. In addition to the existing functions of the current system, the new system will be more user-friendly, optimize the regular transfer of data from MS Excel files, implement automatic data quality checks, provide an output closer to the current Bulletin’s format and be capable of handling the growing data management needs of the organization.
