Together with the largest clients for photography within the UT (U-Today, Promotions & Orations, LISA and MC), a new photography tender was recently completed together with Procurement. New this year were the two categories: one general category and one for PhD defences and inaugural lectures. This is because of the difference of photography disciplines. All tenders were assessed by the project group using various award criteria.
There are few changes in the pool
The pool has been expanded. Some photographers have been working for UT for years and we are adding new ones. Wondering who you can contact from now on and what rates they charge? Check out the Service portal. We look forward to our cooperation with these professionals.
Why a call for tenders?
Because we are a semi-government institution, we have to tender expenses like photography above a certain limit. After this tender, prices and suppliers are fixed for 2 years (with possible extension of 2x 1 year). All photographers in the world could basically tender for this. Our aim is to have a pool of photographers so there’s always one available.
