Media and reputation analysis

The University has a framework agreement with Kantar Sifo for services in media and reputation analysis. Through the framework agreement, Kantar Sifo is directly engaged without the need for any competitive procurement process. The agreement also means that all organisations within LU must engage Kantar Sifo if the service they wish to purchase falls within the agreement. In other cases, direct procurement applies:

Go to the page for direct award of contract

The agreement covers the implementation of media and reputation analyses including reports, conclusions and recommendations. Media and reputation analyses are understood as broad analyses regarding the general public. Reputation analyses aimed at specific target groups, such as young people, alumni or researchers, may be procured directly in cases where the nature of the investigation justifies the procedure.

Kantar Sifo sometimes conducts media analyses and reputation analyses separately, but increasingly together, as reputation affects media image and vice versa. Obvious parts of a reputation analysis also include surveys/questions on awareness, knowledge, trust and attitudes to various brands and stakeholders. In addition to this, Kantar Sifo conducts all types of investigations, in Sweden but also internationally, as part of the Kantar group which is the world’s largest market research company.

Please contact lars [dot] uhlin [at] kommunikation [dot] lu [dot] se for more information on the agreement, or Kantar SIFO directly: martin [dot] ahlqvist [at] kantarsifo [dot] com, +46 709 732 520.

The agreement does not cover media monitoring as Lund University has a separate agreement concerning this service with Retriever Sverige AB.
