Successful tenderers will be experienced practitioners in the relevant areas, with the expertise and experience required to work with the Arts Council's staff by assisting in the appraisal and assessment of funding applications, providing critical advice on artistic work and providing advice in relation to art form policy, as required.

Application for each of these contracts is exclusively by a public tender process advertised via the eTenders Government procurement website www.etenders.gov.ie.

All tender proposals should be submitted by 12 noon on Monday, 5 March 2018.
