PRESS RELEASE: Public Relations RFP Online Tools Launched to Improve, Streamline PR Agency Hiring Process

Agency Select tools have been tested over the last year and successfully used for agency searches for a leading global financial services institution to identify and retain communications agencies in multiple U.S. markets.

“For client organizations with the capacity and experience to manage an agency search, Agency Select provides the tools and resources to efficiently identify, evaluate and select agencies for finalist presentations,” said Robert Udowitz, principal of RFP Associates, CommunicationsMatch’s search consulting partner. “Where the capacity or expertise to manage a search is limited and for large, complex assignments, CommunicationsMatch and RFP Associates provide supplemental services to enable client organizations to get the most from Agency Select.

Client organizations use the CommunicationsMatch agency search engine at no cost. Access to Agency Select is available for an introductory discounted fee of $395 for six months’ access. This includes one hour of consulting support from an RFP Associates principal.

Agencies, consultants and freelancers listed on CommunicationsMatch pay an annual membership fee to maintain a basic or comprehensive profile on the platform, but receive and respond to RFPs and RFQs issued by clients through Agency Select at no additional cost.
