What is Communications Marketplace? 

This Framework is a replacement for the CCS Communication Services Framework. The Framework would be of benefit to UK Public Sector bodies due to the changing environment caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Marketing services is changing the world as we know it. The world of marketing is no different: Our new normal is a challenging one for marketers to navigate.

Public relations is a good way to create brand recognition and establish consumer trust. If a prospect reads a favourable news story about a brand, they are more likely to engage with a salesperson. Earned media can provide third-party validation, which can go even further than traditional advertising. After all, PR experts take advantage of the media to deliver messages for them.

Framework Scope – Communications Marketplace

The framework is needed to provide UK Public Sector Bodies with access to an innovative, quality and value for money approach to buying communications that takes advantage of dynamic changes within the marketplace. This is necessary in order to fulfil the implementation of all Government policy and societal goals, as effective communication to relevant parties is vital for the success of policy implementation.

The framework is also needed to make the process of Government purchasing communication services become quicker, cheaper, and more competitive. The Government has recently had to deal with an “infodemic” – a spread of false information regarding the Coronavirus pandemic, which is just the latest chapter in the continued growth of ‘Fake News’. Additionally, this problem has been amplified and magnified by the prevalence of social media as the main source of news for many citizens. As a result, the need for this framework is greater than ever.
