Tender for Administrative Services to the DSA
INVITATION TO TENDER FOR ADMINISTRATIVE SUPPORT SERVICES TO THE DSA
The DSA Council has determined to invite tenders for the provision of administrative support services to the Association commencing 1st June 2015. This follows on from the financial and administrative restructuring of the DSA after recent deficits and the new Business Plan 2015-2018 (that focuses the Association on its role as a Learned Society promoting the creation and diffusion of knowledge that supports prosperity and human well-being). The Council would like to state that it is extremely grateful to Frances Hill and others in Findings Research for their dedicated service to the DSA for the last 11 years. The decision to put the provision of administrative support out to tender is not a reflection of any dissatisfaction with Findings Research, but the Council believes we should ensure that the DSA is structured and operating in the most effective and cost-efficient way and that from time-to-time this should be tested through a tendering process.
Details of the Invitation to Tender for individual(s) or organizations who are interested in providing such services are available HERE.
These should be read in conjunction with the latest Business Plan
Applications should be submitted to Dr Fiona Nunan, Honorary Secretary of the DSA, via email@example.com, with ‘DSA ESP tender' in the subject line by 1200 on Friday 10th April 2015.
