S4C has announced it is to tender the contract to provide a policy and employment service framework for the independent sector.
The three-year contract will include ensuring that production companies conform to the requirements of S4C’s Terms of Trade in relation to policies and rights, as well as ensuring fair and reasonable work conditions for the sector as a whole.
The contract is offered following a review of the scope and range of the services currently supplied to the channel by TAC, via a contract that comes to an end in December 2009. An open tender process will be conducted in accordance with S4C’s Fair Trading and Procurement Policies.
S4C will publish the tender on its production website in due course (s4c.co.uk/production) and the aim is to appoint a provider early in 2010.
