Crime news: 2010 Standard Crime Contract extension

The new 2010 crime contract schedules will be uploaded by 30 June 2015.


New contract schedules for providers who accepted the Legal Aid Agency’s (LAA) offer to extend the 2010 Standard Criminal Contract will be uploaded by 30 June 2015.

We made the extension offers in December 2014 and March 2015 and the new schedule will start on 1 July 2015 and either run to 30 September 2015 or to 10 January 2016.

The date the schedule runs to will depend on whether a provider accepted one or both of the offers of extension.

Notification of upload

Providers will receive an automated email from CWA when their new schedule has been uploaded and is available to view.


Providers with 2010 standard crime contracts will receive further communications in the week beginning 29 July 2015 confirming:

  • availability of the October schedule
  • user support information

Providers will receive formal confirmation of the new schedule numbers at the end of July. However, these will be available to view on CWA immediately after the upload.
