Maastricht University put out a printing tender in accordance with European legislation. A tender was submitted for two different packages, namely:
This includes business cards, envelopes, folders, and compliment and correspondence cards. Andi Smart Print Solutions, a company based at Maastricht Airport in Beek, was contracted to handle our standard printing needs. All standard print jobs, with the exception of business cards, can be sent to Andi Smart Print Solutions' ordering portal.
Special prints include brochures, posters, flyers, cards, invitations, annual reports, folders, etc. A variety of options are available for printing these types of products.
Three suppliers have been selected for special print jobs: Andi Smart Print Solutions, drukkerij Zalsman (Zwolle) and de Bondt Grafimedia Communicatie (Barendrecht).
You can order special prints in three ways:
1. Through the publishing platform. You will need to request an account via: support-platform[at]maastrichtuniversity[dot]nl.
2. Directly through one of the three suppliers (if you have access to print-ready files).
3. Through a preferred supplier (design agency). In this case, the design agency is the primary contractor and is not required to submit the document to one of the three contracted suppliers.
Please note: According to the tender regulations, you must request a quote from all three suppliers for orders that exceed 5000 euros. You can then choose one of the three suppliers.
UM printing services are managed by ICTS and supplied by Ricoh. For more information, please go to the My Print page.
Design and layout
Design and layout work does not fall under the printing tender. Please contact one of the preferred suppliers to discuss the options.
Media strategy, purchasing and planning
The ministry of General Affairs has issued a European tender for the procurement of media strategy, purchasing and planning. It’s the first time such a broad tender has been issued.
A joint action by all Dutch ministries, almost all government institutions are participating in this tender, which can be applied on a large scale. An example includes the discounts offered by media purchasing (Telegraaf, Persgroep, NRC etc.) by an average of 23%. Universities are also participating.
The tender was won by Initiative Media, a media agency that gives advice on all aspects of marketing and communications. The start date of the contract is 1 January 2017 and will continue for a duration of 3 – 6 years.
Maastricht University has decided to join in carrying out this tender. This means that the parties involved are obliged by the government to enable the media strategy and planning from Initiative Media. This is a difference from previous contracts, which were only media purchasing, while this new contract includes mechanisms for media strategy and planning, an essential difference.
Outside of the scope of this tender are services that we conduct in-house and the creation and production of materials.
Initiative has set up a portal for Maastricht University:
In this portal, you can find the guidelines for working with Initiative and all assignment and placement forms.
