Civil news: opportunity to deliver immigration and asylum work

We welcome expressions of interest to deliver immigration and asylum services in London and/or Kent.

placeholder

Expressions of interest are invited from 2013 Standard Civil Contract holders currently providing immigration and asylum services to deliver supplementary matter starts in these access points:

  • London and/or
  • Mid, South West and Coastal Kent

This is because of increases in:

  1. Demand from asylum seekers being transferred from other areas of the UK to London by National Asylum Seeker Support (NASS)
  2. Unaccompanied Asylum Seeking Children (UASC) following the closure of the camp at Calais

Who can apply?

This opportunity is open to organisations which currently hold a 2013 Standard Civil Contract in the immigration and asylum category of law.

Supplementary matter starts may be requested only for offices that are already authorised to deliver immigration & asylum services in either of the relevant access points.

How to apply

You can apply to deliver supplementary matter starts in London and/or Mid, South West and Coastal Kent by downloading and completing the relevant expression of interest document. This is available on the GOV.UK civil tenders’ page – see below.

Organisations interested in delivering these services must complete and return the relevant expression of interest document by the deadline of 12 noon on Thursday 23 March 2017.
