Reducing harm caused by alcohol


Invitation to tender - alcohol marketing evidence review

Alcohol Focus Scotland is seeking bids from researchers interested in undertaking a review of the evidence on the impact of alcohol marketing on the adult population, including sub-populations of interest.

We are open to suggestions on specific review questions from applicants, but for each of the populations of interest we would like the review to examine:

  • Where, and how often, are these populations exposed to alcohol marketing?
  • To what extent does alcohol marketing drive consumption patterns among these groups?
  • What are the other impacts of marketing on these groups?

 The research will be provided to the Alcohol Marketing Expert Network (an international group of experts hosted by Alcohol Focus Scotland) to inform their recommendations to the Scottish Government ahead of the planned consultation on alcohol marketing in 2021. 

All clarification questions must be made in writing and sent by email to nicola.merrin@alcohol-focus-scotland.org.uk

Tenders must be sent to nicola.merrin@alcohol-focus-scotland.org.uk by 5pm on Friday 29 January 2021. 

We intend to award the contract in early February to enable the work to be completed by mid-May 2021.
