The Legal Aid Agency (LAA) is launching a tender for face-to-face education advice contracts.
Any interested parties that can meet the minimum tender requirements are able to bid for the tender contracts.
We have identified a need to increase capacity and are seeking to place additional contracts in this category of law.
There is therefore no limit to the number of contracts we are seeking to award.
We are particularly interested in receiving tenders from organisations who are willing and able to accept direct referrals from the Civil Legal Advice (CLA) telephone helpline on Thursday and/or Friday each week.
The deadline for submitting tenders is 5pm on 20 May 2021.
Services under the new contracts will begin as soon as possible in June and no later than 1 July 2021.
Contracts will end on 31 August 2022, subject to the LAA’s right to extend this contract for up to a further year.
Where can I find out more?
Detailed information on the tender is available in the Information for Applicants document on our tender pages.
