So the Houses of the Oireachtas want an infographic and one that does this:
provide a visual representation of the budget process from the perspective of the Houses of the Oireachtas that is visually engaging as well as being authoritative, accurate and objective.
and the max ex-VAT price you can quote:
The maximum budget for this project is €2,000
Yeah cos when you tell people the max you’ll pay, that means the quote will be Max minus a few quid.
This is all outlined in an 18 page document. (.Doc Attached)
But hang on, there are some conditions for this:
“it must be possible to print it (A3 and A4) as well as publishing it on the Library & Research Service WordPress website.”
Yeah infographics generally have that ability, you know cos they’re graphics.
But wait, there’s more:
It is expected that there will be at least one kick off meeting after the tender has been awarded to confirm approach and content, and at least one draft infographic delivered to the L&RS before delivery of the final approved infographic.
Think of the admin work that went into producing this tender and evaluating it. For an infrographc!
Last year it cost €105 million to run the Houses of the Oireachtas.
Sorry. You know my weakness around the pun.
