CLOSING DATE AND TIME: APRIL 17, 2018 @ 3.00 PM EST
The World Bank Group is hiring a qualified Firm to provide editorial and typesetting services for the Basic Publishing stream. For the Basic Publishing stream, speed, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness while maintaining an appropriate level of quality, along with excellent customer service (including hours of availability), are critical factors. The Firm should routinely make use of automated editorial tools and a secure interface that enables authors, proofreaders, and other reviewers to mark revisions directly in the paginated proofs rather than annotating a PDF. In addition, the Firm should be capable of providing same-day delivery of electronic files following final approval. The estimated pipeline is 50 - 85 books in the first year, ranging in length from 32 – 600 typeset pages, with most falling in the range of 48 – 272 typeset pages. The expectation is that the pipeline will grow over time.
