PIN for UK legal panel

The UK government is preparing to procure legal services including PPP to all public sector contracting bodies.

The Cabinet Office acting though the Crown Commercial Service is looking to set up a commercial vehicle or vehicles to provide a comprehensive range of commercial legal services to all UK public sector contracting bodies, to include central government departments and their associated bodies including devolved administrations.

Infrastructure is a practice sector with two subsets: PFI/PPP and infrastructure finance. Other sectors and areas include partnerships, construction, project finance, real estate finance and social housing.

Presently, there are two commercial vehicle types being considered: a dynamic purchasing system, and/or a framework. The choice of commercial vehicles will be decided after the results of in-depth market and customer engagement sessions currently being planned.

A contract notice is expected on 30 November.
