Multi Party Framework for Marketing Printing Services
None
Merseytravel is the public transport executive and authority in Merseyside.  We communicate with our customers and stakeholders with various printed materials, including small flyers, complex folded items and large format posters as well as a wide variety of other printed matter.  We have divided this print requirement into two categories:
1.    Short to medium run litho, 1-5 colours up to sheet size B2
2.    Longer run litho, 1-5 colours up to sheet size B1
We are seeking to set up print framework agreements with approved suppliers for each of the above categories.
In addition to the work covered by these two categories, there is the occasional need for other kinds of print, such as short run digital, screen process, security, specialist forms, flexo and web offset.
Existing contracts that are already in place for the provision of printed timetables, may fall within these frameworks as those contracts expire.
