Tender no. PO/2017-01/Lon - Assembly monitoring for the offices of the representation of the European Commission in the United Kingdom – lot 1 (Belfast), lot 2 (Cardiff) and lot 3 (Edinburgh)

One of the core tasks of European Commission Representations and Offices is political reporting. The EC Offices in Northern Ireland (Belfast), Wales (Cardiff) and Scotland (Edinburgh) aim to keep both the London Representation and the European Commission in Brussels abreast of all significant developments in relation to the European Union and its policies, in particular following the referendum result on June 23 2016. This includes monitoring by the EC Offices of issues in the respective Assemblies.  A monitoring service would greatly assist the part time Political Reporters in the Offices by saving time watching plenary sessions, committees, reading through transcripts and monitoring all statements and press releases issued.  Rather than replacing the Political Reporter's role, such a service would add to the detail and information that is already provided by them.

Deadline for applications: 06/03/2017
