Public Sector Network Tender Alert


407738-2012: UK-Edinburgh: Public relations services

The USA is a key market for the Scottish Government and its partner agencies.
There is a current requirement to tender the PR service requirements for these agencies, specifically VisitScotland and the Scottish Government, with possible future participation from additional bodies as listed in this advertisement. Certain activities require a Consumer PR focus where others have a Business to Business focus. This tender therefore comprises two separate lots. Interested agencies are invited to pitch for either or both lots according to their specialist experience. We anticipate a framework agreement with a single supplier for each lot but will accept bids for both lots and if appropriate may award both to a single supplier.

Suppliers are advised to allow adequate time for uploading documents and to dispatch the electronic response well in advance of the closing time to avoid any last minute problems. The postbox closes precisely at the time stated.
