New business UK

UK — DJS Research has announced that it has joined the framework of the Electoral Commission as an approved supplier.

DJS Research joins Ipsos MORI, GfK NOP and TNS BMRB on the quantitative side of the framework for the independent watchdog and regulator of party and election finance.

The selection panel praised the agency’s “clear evidence of staff expertise, focus on robust analysis and clear evidence of how hard-to-reach audiences could be researched cost-effectively.”

Alasdair Gleed, research director at DJS (pictured), said: “It just shows the quality of service that we can provide. There was a time when we were surprised to be awarded frameworks with the likes of Ipsos and GfK, but we’re now at the stage where we expect to compete, and expect to compete very strongly.”
