Each year, the Department issues its client base (approximately 39,000 farm businesses) with a Single Application “pack”, which includes a “Dear Producer Letter (DPL), a Single Application Form, supporting guidance and a number of related forms and inserts. In all cases the Single Application Form is pre-populated with claim-related information as retained by the Department in the preceding Scheme year. Consequently, all application packs which are complied are personalised prior to distribution (mailshot) to prospective applicants.
The contract to deliver the Department’s print requirements for the production and distribution of Single Farm Payment Scheme Application packs, maps and associated materials for RPD for the years 2012 to 2013 is now due for renewal. The Department, therefore, wishes to invite tenders from suitably experienced print service suppliers to fulfil its commitment to print, prepare and distribute Single Application packs to its client base from the 2012 Scheme year for a period of two years.
