Contract Control Number: TECHS-201738497

 

Vendor/Contractor Name (including any “DBA”): AOR Incorporated

 

Type and Scope of services to be performed:

Denver Marketing and Media Services (DMMS) conducted an RFP process in 2017 to establish multiple contracts with suppliers that will provide consulting services related to planning, managing, facilitating, and implementing marketing and branding initiatives for all City Department’s programs, projects, events, and Citywide priorities. As this was the first time DMMS facilitated a procurement process of this nature, there was limited information available to establish individual contract maximums. Due to multiple City Agency requests as well as complex, multiyear marketing projects and campaigns, the current contract maximum is insufficient. The additional $480,000 is estimated to be sufficient to be able to complete any future marketing projects throughout the duration of the contract.

Some examples of completed projects and projects in the queue:

                     Denver Human Services - Brand Campaign (#BeHuman)

o                     Provide AOR's expertise to bring the visual, creative concept to life for the overarching campaign. Building out of the visual assets to complete a campaign brand guide that can work as a system for other program-specific sub-brands (#BeAGiver/giving campaigns; #BePositive/positive parenting techniques; #BeTheDifference/foster care) and have legs to extend throughout all agency initiatives.

o                     Bring creativity and strategy to truly humanize the department both in tone and in look and feel.

                     Clerk & Recorder (Denver Elections Division) - Multiple campaign support

o                     Starting with the 2018 General Election (November 2018) as well as the Support for Primary Election (June 2018)

§                     Created an education campaign called “Don’t Flush Your Vote” campaign to educate primary voters how to vote in Denver’s, first ever, primaries conducted by the Elections Division instead of party officials where independent could now vote, regardless of party affiliation.

o                     Based on the success of the “Don’t Flush Your Vote” campaign, this same messaging was used for the 2018 General Election.
