Council looks for a printer to handle its corporate communications
August 13, 2011 by Gareth
Clackmannanshire Council is looking for a new printing company to undertake the printing of its corporate communications. The Council currently produces a wide range of publications, from the Grapevine, which is Clackmannanshire Council’s staff newsletter to the council’s own newspaper, The Clackmannanshire View. These publications are used to communicate internally throughout the organisation and are the key to the smooth flow of information throughout the staff at the council. Internal communications are often considered an integral part of any organisation and so finding a printer who can meet Clackmannanshire Council’s demands is an important task. The council also requires a company who can provide banner, poster and flyer printing.
Dunfermline, Sterling and the other areas surrounding Clackmannanshire are all targets for the council and its search for a printing firm, but larger national printing companies are likely to express interest in the contract. Clackmannanshire Council’s corporate printing contract is worth somewhere in the region of £40,000 per year. The contract is available for an initial twelve months with the potential to extend this for a further twelve months at the end of it.
Smaller printing companies based in Dunfermline and Clackmannanshire are more than capable of producing posters, flyers and banners and many smaller organisations choose to use a smaller firm for this kind of printing due to the bespoke services they offer, whilst larger councils or organisations may opt for a firm that operates on a larger scale.
The invitation for printing companies to express interest in Clackmannanshire’s printing contract is open until the 14th August.
