ACSEF is a joint public/private sector body promoting the economic development of the area covered by Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire Councils.

Nestrans is the statutory Regional Transport Partnership for the Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire Councils areas.

The two bodies are planning to appoint an agency, which will be expected to pro-actively manage the public relations of ACSEF and Nestrans, and manage events and exhibitions to deliver key messages about their work.

The audience for planned events, exhibitions and PR work includes businesses, Members of the Scottish Parliament, MEPs, MPs, councillors and the public.

The successful agency will also be expected to attend monthly meetings of the ACSEF management team; and carry out digital communications.

Valued at £200,000, the contract will be for three years, subject to contract reviews at 6 months and eighteen months. The contract will have the option of a one-year extension period.

Agencies can register interest until 7 March by visiting the Public Contracts Scotland site.
