We will be awarding a framework agreement for public relations and marketing services to Forest Enterprise England. Other parts of the Forestry Commission will have the opportunity to use this framework, although this is not expected to be a major source of work.
The successful agencies will be able to provide a full service including marketing and public relations, either by direct delivery by the agency appointed or through the use of approved subcontractors. The chosen agencies will have enough capacity to develop knowledge and understanding of forestry issues and audiences/customers. The agencies must also have the capacity to travel and work across all of England or in one or more of the Forestry Commission areas/districts which cover large parts of the country. Travel may also include going to remote parts of the country and include outdoor visits in all weather conditions.
