Running a tender exercise can be time consuming and confusing. We help you simplify the process, and achieve best value. Working as part of your team, we deal with the legal aspects and help you to achieve your objectives within the constraints of the legislative framework.
Where you are tendering, we help you understand the process, ask the relevant questions and, where necessary, challenge a flawed process or decision.
Getting the best advice up front can avoid having to abort a defective procurement process, or finding yourself with an ineffective contract, or out of time to bring a challenge all of which increase both risks and costs.

Public Procurement - ContractsBy Owen Williams
In brief, the EU procurement regime, implemented in the UK by the Public Contracts Regulations 2006, applies to contracts for works, services and supplies over particular financial thresholds. If a contract is within its scope, it must be advertised within the EU’s Official Journal, the “OJ”.
This guide provides a brief explanation of how contracting authorities can determine which contracts are covered.
