Legal Services framework awarded

 

We are pleased to announce the award of a new Legal Services framework which replaces the existing Legal Services and LitCat frameworks.

The new single cross-government framework was developed in close collaboration with Government Legal Service (GLS) and will drive further savings and improve efficiency in the provision of legal services across the whole of the public sector.

The new framework provides access to high quality professional legal services, whilst delivering best value for the taxpayer.  It covers eight categories of legal service provision:

Lot 1: IT, Telecoms, Media and eCommerce

Lot 2: Property and Estates

Lot 3: Employment and Pensions

Lot 4: General Corporate including Tax Insolvency

Lot 5: Finance and Financial Regulation

Lot 6: General Commercial

Lot 7: General Litigation and Legal Services

Lot 8: Major or Complex Projects

These categories were developed by GPS and GLS to offer ready access to a wide range of firms – from niche practices to full service commercial firms – including those with the ability to handle complex and high value projects.

The value of the framework is estimated at up to £250million over a period of up to four years.  Legal services procurement is subject to strict spending controls.

Full details will be on the website shortly. In the meantime, if you would like to find out more about accessing this new framework please contact our customer service desk on 0345 410 2222 or email info@gps.gsi.gov.uk
