The Tender seeks to consolidate all print requirements into a considered and structured approach. This approach will deliver a streamlined, quality-driven service — benefitting from solid account management support and technological advancements, whilst also delivering financial savings to the University.

The duration of the Tender requires us to thoroughly review and test the market to ensure each category of print achieves appropriate suppliers who have specialist and ‘future proofed’ expertise to support all facets of University print requirements, throughout the course of the entire contract period.

The University wishes to establish a framework agreement for its corporate print requirements. The framework agreement will be for duration of 3 years with the option of 1 further 1-year extension dependent on contract performance. The framework shall have 3 lots; Digital colour, and black and white print, General Litho print and Coventry University prospectus.

Coventry University requires suppliers for its black and white printing and copying. This is for standard A4 print for an expected 4 million impressions per annum.

Suppliers awarded to this will also be required to provide the University with its low volume digital colour print requirements. The job quantities can vary 1-500 with a total print volume of approximately 500 000+ annually. The range of print will be diverse from leaflets, flyers, posters, newsletters, booklets and reports ranging from sizes of A5 to A0 paper.

Coventry University will require suppliers who can offer high quality, sheet fed lithography press printing. This will typically include A4 and A5 brochures ranging from 12pp to 48pp up to 20 000.

Coventry University requires a supplier to supply printed copies of their range of prospectuses on a per annum basis. The prospectus is essential to Coventry University as it is an opportunity for the University to advertise itself to potential new students. We provide prospectuses for our Coventry University offering (UG and PG), our Coventry University offering (combined UG/PG) and our CU offering (UG only). The 2017 UG prospectus was a 114 page document, 250mm x 170mm of which 30 000 were printed. Some Prospectuses may require personalisation with selective sections from the prospectus, printed on high end digital press and mailed directly to students.

Further information about STA and the national curriculum tests and assessments can be found at www.education.gov.uk/assessments The Requirement. STA are looking to procure a supplier to work with us to determine appropriate models for assuring the national data from the reception baseline. Once models have been determined, STA will agree up to three approaches to be implemented by the supplier in small scale pilots during September/October 2015. The supplier will also be responsible for evaluating the approaches using evidence from the pilots with the aim of recommending an approach to be implemented from September 2016. Key Supplier Requirements: — Organisational capability and experience of designing and conducting quality assurance processes in an educational environment; — Proven experience in delivering a product to time and quality using an agreed methodology; — Ability to source and train appropriately qualified representatives; — Ability to collate and analyse data to evaluate options; — Based on evidence received make recommendations; — Ensure the security of information. Background. The DfE will use a new reception baseline assessment to capture the starting point from which the progress that schools make with their pupils will be measured. The content of the reception baseline will reflect the knowledge and understanding of children at the start of reception, and will be clearly linked to the learning and development requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage and key stage 1 national curriculum in English and Mathematics. The reception baseline will be administered within the first half term of a pupil's entry to a reception class. Data from the reception baseline will be used to hold schools to account; it must therefore be valid and reliable. Although the reception baseline suppliers are undertaking some activities to quality assure the data they submit, their customer/supplier relationship with schools means that additional central quality assurance will be required. The reception baseline is a new assessment and the Department has not quality assured assessments of this nature before. As a result, we need to pilot and evaluate different approaches to see what works. Indicative Time-line Task Name Date. Contract Notice and Invitation to Tender Issued on Contracts Finder: 25.3.2015.
