The National Social Security and Insurance Trust (NASSIT) is a Statutory Public Trust, charged with the responsibility of administering Sierra Leone’s National Pension Scheme. By the National Social Security and Insurance Trust Act. No. 5 of 20th July 2001, The National Social Security and Insurance Trust was established to provide retirement and other benefits to meet the contingency needs of workers and their dependents and to provide other related matters. NASSIT has an official corporate website (https://www.nassit.org.sl) the Trust’s official registered domain), and an email system that has been in use since 2005. While the previous system has served its purpose, technology, and expectations have evolved and therefore the website now requires an overhaul to reflect current trends in modern functionalities and appearance of corporate websites that are responsive for mobile devices and intuitive to easily find information. Furthermore, the corporate email used by NASSIT is limited in functionalities and space per user and it is not linked to the internal mailing system of the Trust.
NASSIT provides a range of services to the public and the website will function as a gateway and “one-stop shop” to provide access to all that Trust has to offer and engage the public. In a bid to improve on NASSIT’s online presence through their website and provide email hosting services, NASSIT contracted INTEGEMS to design, develop and host NASSIT’s website and corporate email system.
