The Office of the High Representative invites companies/agencies to submit proposals for creating an advertising Media Plan and carrying out the activities confirmed in the Media Plan in the territory of Bosnia and Herzegovina in period July-August 2023.

I) Background

II) Statement of Work

III) Proposal Submission Conditions

IV) Selection and Award

V) Proposal Submission and Deadline

I Background

OHR is seeking a company/agency that will create and implement a media plan for a public information campaign at the level of Bosnia and Herzegovina to inform the public about the importance of solving the issue of state property so that the public can understand why these processes should be supported and what damage has already been caused by their non-implementation.

It is necessary to place three (3) TV animations, each lasting 30 seconds, and five (5) infographics. Animations and infographics have already been produced.

II Scope of Work

Scope of Work includes the following services and activities:

  • Analysis and creation of an advertising strategy on assigned TV channels and social networks,
  • Creating a Media Plan,
  • Implementation of activities confirmed in the Media Plan (media buying).

The successful bidder shall be responsible for the full implementation of the Media Plan.

1. Analysis and Implementation

a) The media analysis must include information on the viewership of TV channels and their reach, as well as information on visits to online portals, on the basis of which the media plan will be created. The analysis should justify the relevance of the proposed terms in relation to the target group.

b) At the end of advertising, it is necessary to submit a detailed report with key indicators of the successful implementation of the campaign and the results achieved.

Media Plan
Media Plan should include:

2.1 Advertising on TV:

a) broadcast of three (3) TV animations, each lasting 30 seconds, in prime time on the following TV stations and according to the distribution of the total number of broadcasts:

  • BHT1
  • FTV
  • RTRS
  • TV BN

The OHR has already placed this material on some of these stations but is open to changing its choice of media if the agency offers sound alternative proposals.

b) broadcast of three (3) TV animations should be simultaneous and in approximately the same ratio of the number of broadcasts.

2.2 Advertising on social media
Preferred channels: direct ad purchase on web portals based on an analysis of visits as well as demographic and territorial coverage of the target groups, Google Ads, Facebook and Instagram ads (tailored profiles on these two social networks already exist), and YouTube ads.

3. Geographic area to be covered:

Bosnia and Herzegovina

4. Target group:

Citizens of BiH 18+.

Media Plan should particularly focus on viewers who are less likely to regularly monitor online content using smartphones or personal computers and are therefore less likely to be directly targeted by social media ads.

5. Period of broadcast:

1 July – 31 August 2023

6. Total Budget: 67,769.50 KM excluding VAT (34,650.00 EUR)

Budget distribution recommendation: 75% for advertising on TV and 25% for advertising on social networks.

Note: Total budget amount includes agency fee and all agency costs.
