According to the tender listing, it will include working across recruitment, public notices, student attraction, sponsorship of public spaces, as well as “other campaigns required by the public sector.”
The framework is expected to be split into lots.
Agencies are being asked to submit expressions on interest by 27th September. Successful applicants will be confirmed in February.
The DWP has also announced a major print tender, worth up to £100m.

It’s expected that the contracts will be awarded in 2020.
