Use of PR & Media Firms

We're waiting for Jamie Mann to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Scottish Forestry,

In excel spreadsheet form, please list any public relations, communications, media consultancy or lobbying firms hired by your organisation in the last five years:

Please provide:

– 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

For avoidance of doubt, please provide more detail than, for example, "communications and PR support". Instead, please detail what specific issues were communicated and how this was done.

Thanks,

Jamie Mann
