Ireland-Dublin: Provision of Editing and Proofreading Services
Section I: Contracting authority
Section II: Object
Provision of Editing and Proofreading Services
The subject matter of the FWC is the provision of editing and proofreading services. Eurofound requires specialised, qualified and experienced English-language editorial services to contribute to the development of Eurofound’s publishing activities and ensure the delivery of high-quality print and online publications, while managing a fluctuating workload and bottlenecks. The editorial function is critical in ensuring the high-quality standard of Eurofound publications.
The tasks are to be performed at the premises designated by the contractor and agreed by Eurofound.
To disseminate its research findings, Eurofound produces a substantial number of research-based publications each year (over 40 in 2019, a total of around 5 000 standard pages). Eurofound’s key information products are reports (100-150 standard pages) and policy briefs (about 30 standard pages). In addition, Eurofound publishes a variety of HTML-based products, such as quarterly reports detailing national-level developments in industrial relations and working conditions.
English is the working language of Eurofound and the source language of all publications. Some short items — such as executive summaries — are translated into 20+ languages; for these, a very high-quality of English in the original is vital to ensure effective and accurate translation.
The contract is concluded for a period of 12 months with effect from the date on which it enters into force.
The contract is renewed automatically three (3) times for a period of 12 months each, unless one of the parties receives formal notification to the contrary at least three months before the end of the ongoing duration. Renewal does not change or postpone any existing obligations.
