UKSBS PS17150 UKRI internal communications support

CLOSING TIME FOR BIDS IS 03/07/2017 14:00 HOURS. DO NOT APPLY DIRECTLY TO THE BUYER. Note : Please disregard any content in this notice that requests your organisation "to apply directly to the buyer" as this unfortunately a system generated error, that is outside of the Contracting Authorities control We require internal communications contractor support to provide both strategic review and challenge for existing and development plans and ongoing operational, logistical and creative content support during the transition period. Our aim is that all staff, subject to segmentation, are engaged with the transition programme and, ahead of the launch of UKRI, have a strong understanding of the purpose and mission of the organisation and their role within it. The creation of UKRI is a highly significant change within the research and innovation sector but the transition ahead of April 2018 will affect staff in different ways, with many experiencing very little change but all needing to understand the new organisation and have the opportunity to contribute to its development. A small internal communications community exists within the partner organisations that will come together to make up UKRI and there are identified leads within the shadow communications team. Specifically, the shadow communications team has expert international communications staff from both the civil service and the partner organisations. However, this group does not have sufficient capacity or the full range of capabilities to deliver the anticipated programme of communications and engagement. The successful contractor will be expected to work closely with and in support of the existing in-house staff.
