The IPA has received an update from the Crown Commercial Services on the Creative Services and Strategy Planning Agreements.
They are aiming to publish the notice in the Official Journal of the European Union on Monday 13th June 2016. This is when the procurement will be open for bids and agencies will have the succeeding 30 days (approximately, this is TBC) to submit bids to get on to the new Agreement. The aim is that the new Agreement will, therefore, go live in September 2016.
They will be entering a phase of testing and offer guidance, and we'll keep our members updated as things progress. Members can sign up to our Tenders email list here where we'll be posting materials in due course.
