Description

The Council is seeking tenders for the provision of a Residents' Magazine Publication that will be required to be produced three times a year for a period of three years from August 2021 (allowing for three months for advertising sales) until May 2024,. The provision includes graphic design; advertising sales; print; and distribution of 183,000 magazines to households in the Dorset Council area and 700 magazines to libraries and Council offices in the Dorset Council area.

Pending approval, the contractor will also produce a magazine in July 2024, as this is an important issue that will inform residents of the newly elected councillors.

Therefore, Dorset Council are seeking a contractor who is able to produce a cost-effective magazine from August 2021 to May 2024.
