BioMade, the public-private partnership working to nurture the bioindustrial manufacturing sector, is looking for a firm to handle its national media relations effort and provide reputation management services.

The organization’s goal is “creating more robust and resilient supply chains, making the US more self-sufficient, re-shoring manufacturing jobs and producing more environmentally sustainable products without relying on traditional petroleum sources,” according to the RFP.

The selected firm will advise on communications strategy, develop issue-specific key messages and talking points, craft pitches, provide media training and organize press conferences.

It will create risk management plans to deal with potential negative press related to a member organization or BioMade-funded research.

Proposals are due July 26. They go to Christine Lee, communications manager at [email protected].
