Greater Manchester Council is to compile a design and print framework for a number of sites across the Council and its partners.
The council will tender for companies to supply design and printing requirements ranging from small to medium quantities of business stationary to large print runs of booklets, leaflets, bespoke posters and publications.
The design element of the contract will see suppliers appointed who are able to work across both design and print, although general print through the use and supply of multi-function printing devices will not be included.
The framework will be mainly used by Trafford Council, although it will also be made accessible to other partner authorities including Greater Manchester Police, Greater Manchester Fire & Rescue, Trafford Housing Trust, Trafford Leisure Trust & Trafford College and Trafford PCT.
The contract will see eight agencies appointed to the framework over a four year period.
Requests for documents should be made by 15 June through online procurement system The Chest.
