Faulds Advertising and Barkers Scotland are facing a review of
their shared pounds 2.5 million Scottish Office account.
The business, which includes road safety, domestic violence and food
safety accounts, has been advertised in the Official Journal of the
European Community. Jim Faulds, the chairman of Faulds Advertising,
said: ’Procedures for statutory review are in motion and we take
nothing for granted.’
The Scottish Office reviews the account every three years.
Media, held by Faulds and CIA Medianetwork, is up for grabs, along with
the creative work. Faulds is the lead agency, handling about pounds 1.5
million-worth of advertising a year. But Barkers has been increasing
its share and recently created a campaign for the nursery vouchers
Faulds is set to create food safety campaigns in the wake of the
Scottish outbreaks of fatal E.coli food poisoning.
The results of the review are not likely to be revealed until after the
general election in two months’ time.
