  • Submit design for review and approval by the project team. There should be enough time for at least 3 iterations of review.
  • Liaise with the publisher and supervise the successful printing of the manuscript.

The budget for this work is £5,900, inclusive of all expenses and VAT if applicable. A breakdown of the materials expected to be produced as part of this contract are listed in the full tender brief.
