Civil news: further tender opportunities for 2018 contract work

A new tender opportunity is available to bid for 2018 face to face contract work.


We are providing another opportunity to tender for face to face 2018 civil contracts in the following three categories of law:

  • family

  • housing and debt

  • immigration and asylum

The procurement process is limited to the small number of geographic areas where we wish to secure greater provision.

Who can tender?

The tender process is open to both existing contract-holders and new entrants. It is a single-stage process that will assess:

  • an organisation’s suitability to contract with us

  • their ability to meet our service requirements

Contracts will be procured using a non-competitive process. This will be limited to the categories of law and procurement areas specified above.

All organisations assessed as being suitable and meeting the minimum service requirements will be awarded a contract.

How can I tender?

Tenders must be submitted using the LAA’s e-Tendering system – see below. A link is also available on the tender pages of the LAA website.

If you wish to tender then you must submit a response for the relevant invitation to tender (ITT) in the category of work you wish to deliver.

You may also need to submit a response to the selection questionnaire that forms part of this tender opportunity. This will be required if your organisation:

  • did not submit a tender for a 2018 Standard Civil Contract as part of last year’s main civil 2018 contracts tender process

  • submitted a tender but was excluded at the selection questionnaire stage

  • submitted a tender but has a selection questionnaire response which is no longer valid

Organisations which tendered successfully as part of the main civil 2018 contracts tender process and whose circumstances have not changed will need to confirm this. They can do so in their tender response.
