Services: Media Monitoring and Analysis
Cyprus, 26 July 2017
SUBJECT OF THE CONTRACT
In accordance with the provisions of Regulation (EU, Euratom) No 966/2012 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 25 October 2012 on the financial rules applicable to the general budget of the European Union, the European Parliament has decided to issue this invitation to tender for the provision of Media Monitoring and Analysis Services for the European Parliament Information Office in Cyprus.
DESCRIPTION, PURPOSE AND ESTIMATED VALUE OF THE CONTRACT
The European Parliament launches this procedure aiming to award a one year framework contract for daily monitoring of written press (national/regional), audiovisual media (radio, TV) and the main online (internet) media. This contract may be renewed up to a maximum of four years.
The purpose is to provide a timely, up-to-date compendium of daily information, in the form of press reviews, about the way in which topics of relevance to the European Parliament and the European Union are reported in the media. The European Parliament's Directorate-General for Communication (DG COMM) is seeking to ensure it has the best possible knowledge of the media coverage across the EU on topics related to the European Union, the European Parliament and the activities of its President and MEPs. Media analysis will ultimately help the EP to better communicate EU policies to EU citizens and specific target audiences. In order to achieve this, the EP relies partly on external expertise and assistance.
The services will be delivered by the external team via the global media monitoring and analysis platform of the European Parliament (hereafter EPMM) directly to the recipients.
The total approximate value of the contract for four years is maximum EUR 270,000.00
The split of budget between activities is:
Media monitoring activities maximum EUR 230,000.00
Media analysis maximum EUR 40,000.00
The total duration of the contract shall be four years. Performance of the contract shall not begin until the framework contract is signed. Any renewal of the contract shall take place in accordance with the terms laid down in the contract.
