The Central Office of Information (COI) has awarded Man Bites Dog a place on its new roster of preferred PR agencies.
Man Bites Dog joins 14 other agencies in the Government and Public Sector to Business category of preferred suppliers.
The annual value of COI PR spend is £15m and the framework will be in place for four years. During this time, Man Bites Dog has the opportunity to pitch for campaigns relating to communication between the government / public sector and the business community.
In order to secure this place on the roster, Man Bites Dog beat hundreds of agencies in the UK by providing a detailed, creative response to a fictitious campaign brief. The process also included rigorous assessments to ensure the agency complies with EU procurement laws and demonstrates sound financial performance, business practice, internal systems and continuity.
Man Bites Dog specialises in B2B and government to business communications for a wide range of audiences, including entrepreneurs, women / BME owned businesses, SMEs, mid-caps and major corporates.
Claire Mason, Managing Director of Man Bites Dog said: "Our position on the new COI roster recognises the team's expertise in delivering smart campaigns to engage a diverse range of business audiences."
