Market research services. Tate Gallery is leading a collaborative procurement exercise for the provision of ‘Market Research Services’ on behalf of a number of publicly funded national museums and galleries including but not limited to ‘Executive non-departmental public bodies’ of the Department of Culture Media and Sport . It is anticipated at this stage that a single supplier will be awarded a 4-year framework agreement to provide quantitative audience profiling and reporting for the group. The work will comprise face-to-face exit polls of visitors to each of these cultural organisations followed by the production and supply of top-line results, tables, reports and presentations including benchmarking data to all those museums and galleries that are named in the final framework. Existing data history needs to be continued so that longer term trends can be analysed.
Agencies expressing an interest must do so in the form of a completed pre-qualification questionnaire. They will need to demonstrate [amongst other things] a track record in providing insightful analysis and reports based on solid understanding of visitors to cultural organisations and/or visitor attractions whilst managing the complexity and deadlines of providing data, reports and benchmarking for at least 12 cultural organisations with the same quarterly and annual timings.
