How will the tender work?

It is a single-stage process that will assess an organisation’s:

Contracts will be procured using a non-competitive process. Any organisation assessed as being suitable and meeting the minimum service requirements will be awarded a contract.

Which categories of law are open to bids?

Tenders are invited in the following categories of law:

  1. family, including private law family and public law child care work

  2. housing, debt and welfare benefits
