REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL
GRAPHIC DESIGN SERVICES
SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT PROGRAM
OCTOBER 10, 2014

BASIS OF THE PROJECT

Saint Louis County Department of Health (DOH) is seeking proposals from qualified individuals and firms to provide graphic design services to support the public education and outreach programs of the Solid Waste Management Program (SWMP). SWMP has funding through a voter-approved landfill surcharge fee to implement sustainable programs to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills. In addition, SWMP is tasked with regulatory authority to assure the proper management of wastes in accordance with the Waste Management Code.

Services will be provided on an as-needed basis at the request of SWMP to update existing education pieces and to create new pieces. Initial projects include but are not limited to: layout of the unincorporated newsletter; single-stream recycling brochure; hard-to-recycle items brochure; marketing and outreach tools (including logo and branding) for a new industrial, commercial and institutional (ICI) waste diversion program. A description of the ICI program is outlined in Appendix B.

The proposed budget is approximately $25,000. Payment will be for services rendered utilizing standard hourly rates. Estimated hours to complete work tasks will be approved by SWMP prior to initiating projects and payment will not be made for billable hours invoiced that exceed project estimates without prior written SWMP approval. The service contract will be for one year with the option to renew for up to two additional years. The anticipated start date for the contract is January 5, 2015.

Contractor shall provide final product in formats compatible with Adobe Creative Suite (CS4). For most projects, printing will be coordinated through the DOH print shop; however, on occasion printing may require coordination with a contracted vendor.
