This agreement provides access to agencies offering media monitoring services so buyers can monitor, analyse and evaluate print, broadcast, digital and social media coverage. It also provides access to self-service tools to monitor and analyse social media.
This framework is open to central government and organisations across the public sector. In most cases, you will need to undertake a further competition to appoint a supplier from the framework.

- Alerts customers to emerging news stories based on keywords and topics

- T&Cs incorporate best practice.
Before using this agreement you should ensure that you receive internal approval. Customer guidance (see attached documents) on use of this agreement includes advice on best practice for contracting with suppliers.
In most cases, you will need to undertake a further competition to access the framework, but if you have a simple requirement valued at less than £20,000 per year you have the option to award a contract directly. Guidance for the direct award process is available in the documents section.
To run a further competition, you can use CCS’s eSourcing tool.
