RPSOFR has received questions regarding this project and hereby provides the answers (see below). This does NOT extend the due date for receipt of proposals. Since that date is very near fiscal year end (9-30-2017) we would ask (ask as a courtesy - not require) companies to let us know if they will be submitting a proposal so we can prepare for the volume of work to be expected.

A.2 There is no ‘original photography asset required from offerors LONDON - The photographs will be made available to the contractor from the U.S. Government open sources such as Instagram accounts and official websites. However, we do expect potential contractors to have in-house facility to manipulate / edit / process images according to the instructions provided. For example, cropping the image and / or incorporating branding by including logo(s) etc. The latest version of Photoshop - compatible to the one that the London Hub uses - would be sufficient to do the job.

Regarding duration of video clips, most of the time - consistent with usual social media practices - the clips will be between 30sec to 2min.
