Dear Royal Conservatoire of Scotland,
In excel spreadsheet form, please list any public relations, communications, media consultancy or lobbying firms hired by your organisation in the last five years:
– The name of the firm (or individual/freelancer)
– The contract number
– The start and end date of each contract
– The amount of money paid to each firm (including VAT)
–The remit/purpose of the hire, and detail of what activities they undertook for your organisation
