Great design can transform Singapore and build an innovative economy and a more loveable city.

To support the design industry, a set of guidelines has been developed by the DesignSingapore Council (Dsg) and the Ministry of Finance to help government agencies become better buyers of design and address areas of concerns like requests for unlimited changes, unclear compensation for intellectual property rights, and free pitching of concept proposals.

Created in consultation with the design industry, the guidelines apply to graphic design and visual communication, exhibition, stage, façade and interior design, as well as product and industrial design.

We hope this guide gives you greater insight into the government procurement process for design services.

Contents:

  1. Who and What this guide is for: If you are seeking to understand the government’s processes for procuring design services, this guide is for you.
  2. What a good client brief should contain
  3. How design firms and proposals will be evaluated
