for research and development of integrated marketing program and media production services for NIU Law School.
The University's Law School wishes to develop a marketing program that will be integrated with the University's campus-wide marketing plan, currently under development, to create a strong presentation of the offerings of NIU and its Law School. This will require research to identify the strengths of the Law School and how to best market them. The research will also identify those areas that may be improved and how to best achieve that goal. The response should also include plans for the associated media development and presentation program needed for success of the marketing plan. The goal is a program to best position the NIU Law School in the competitive north central area, with special emphasis for the northern Illinois area.
Respondents will be required to demonstrate background and experience of both the
firm and key personnel to be assigned in research and development of such programs for law schools of comparable size and market position. References for at least four successful programs completed for law schools of similar size and nature involving work of like scope, complete with contact name, address, and phone number, will be required. Examples of various media work done for print, video, or internet, must also be submitted. Full information regarding response requirements will be covered further in the RFP document which should be available by fax,
or on-line after January 3, 2002 from this Bulletin web-site. If a fax copy is required please fax your request to (815) 753-6800, Attn: R. Caswell.
Implementation of the marketing plan, including research and media development, will be accomplished in phases, depending upon costs for each phase, time requirements, and availablility of funding. (Submitted by Kathe Shinham, State Purchasing Officer.)
