Councils offered tendering guide

Local authorities have a new guide to procuring PR services. It offers tips on the tendering and pitching process and highlights rules and restrictions.

The guide, 'Making PR work for you – how to get the best out of your procurement process', was launched at last Friday's CIPR Local Government Group AGM.

Helen Ashley, managing director of Upward Curve PR, which compiled the pamphlet, said: 'There has never been a procurement guide specifically for PR, which is very different from other services such as waste management and cleaning.'

The document also advises councils to compare the proposals from several PR agencies.
