Title of the contract
RESEARCH PROJECT TO INVESTIGATE BARRIERS TO VISITING WALES AND TO INFORM STRATEGIC DIRECTION
Description of the contract

We seek to commission an integrated research project to include both qualitative and quantitative elements.

The primary purpose of this project is the identification of the main barriers to visiting in Wales and insight into their relative significance.

The qualitative work could take the form of focus groups selected to reflect an appropriate mix of characteristics, and/or could involve depth interviews on a one-to-one basis. The quantitative research is likely to involve a large-scale omnibus survey or possibly a large on-line panel. We would seek agencies’ expert advice in formulating the optimum balance between these approaches.

Of the scored questions in the PQQ only the top 8 suppliers who achieve the threshold of 6 (60%) will be taken through to the ITT stage.
