Statutory notices and advertising contract

Contract no. SPS 2001

The Royal Borough of Greenwich is seeking a suitable supplier who can exclusively host our statutory notices and other Council advertising as required (non-exclusive) in a weekly publication at a favourable rate. The Council will consider new start-up businesses or SMEs for the purpose of this contract.

Outline of service

The Council is legally obliged to produce statutory notices, promote key services and provide information to residents to enable them to access its services. The awarded contractor will therefore be expected to provide a weekly publication, with a minimum guaranteed circulation delivered door to door in the borough.

The publication will need to meet the criteria required to run statutory notices and will need to be delivered in line with ABC audited reporting standards. If the contractor does not currently meet ABC audit rules, the Council will allow it a period of up to nine months to gain ABC verification.

The successful contractor will need to supplement door to door deliveries with copies of the publication being made available from pick up bins in hard to reach areas and online for residents who prefer to receive their information in a digital format.

The contractor will also be expected to ensure that the advertisements are published in the context of engaging local editorial content which helps to positively inform local residents about the measures that their neighbours and local service providers are undertaking to make the borough a great place to live, work, learn and visit.

Contract details

The period of contract will be three years with an option to extend the contract for a period of 24 months. Any extension of contract will only be exercised at the sole discretion of the Council.

The Royal Borough of Greenwich cannot guarantee an on-going minimum or maximum volume of statutory notices and other advertising. However it is anticipated that the value of the minimum value of the contract will be approximately £100,000 and the maximum value will be around £400,000.
