Cherwell District Council and South Northamptonshire Council are collaborating to appoint a single supplier to provide Printing Services for a wide range of printed material as follows:
• 1 to 4 Colour
• Range of formats and extents
• Range of print runs
• Leaflets, posters, promotional material

Please note that the minimum requirement for providing the services on this framework is:

• Account Manager to be available within 24 hours for a face to face meeting
• A proactive attitude to problem solving over common design and print issues
• Facility for providing cost effective print runs as low as 500 copies
• Delivery of orders from approval within 5 working days
• Capacity for providing print jobs within 24 hours in the event of an emergency within the district

South Northamptonshire Council is leading this collaborative procurement. The Council intends to realise the maximum possible benefits of this procurement but needs the resulting contract to be flexible and diverse enough to allow opportunities for public sector engagement with other Contracting Bodies:
• Stratford-on-Avon District Council
• Oxford City Council
• Oxfordshire County Council
• South Oxfordshire District Council
• The Vale of White Horse District Council
• West Oxfordshire District Council
• Buckinghamshire County Council
• Wycombe District Council
• South Bucks District Council
• Chiltern District Council
• Milton Keynes District Council
• Corby Borough District Council
• Kettering Borough District Council
• Borough Council of Wellingborough
• Daventry District Council
• East Northamptonshire District Council

Any resulting agreement must enable effective customer / provider relationships to develop within an ethos of continuous improvement and efficiency. At this stage only Cherwell District Council and South Northamptonshire Council will utilise the contract, but others may have access to this contract at any point during the contractual period.
No business is guaranteed from these local authorities and only Stratford-on-Avon District Council has expressed an interest at this point. However, each Council drawing down upon the services let under this tender will enter into a separate contract with the successful Bidders on the same terms provided with the Invitation to Tender.
