This contract is to conduct a survey across Wales between March 2016 and March 2021 (with the option to extend fieldwork to March 2022) and supply the resulting data to the Welsh Government.

— to deliver final weighted datasets within six weeks of the completion of each 12 month fieldwork period, based on all cases achieved during that period.
The budget available is 300 000 GBP in 2015-16, 1 700 000-2 000 000 GBP in each of 2016-17 and 2017-18, and 1 800 000-2 100 000 GBP per financial year thereafter (excluding VAT, and including inflation over the life of the contract).
