The Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC) has issued a prior information notice on its plans to re-tender for a national legal services framework worth an estimated £65m.
The current framework expires on 31 January 2021.
MOPAC said the new framework would supply legal services to a range of public bodies “including the GLA functional bodies, police forces, police authorities and various other public bodies including all local authorities in England, Wales and Northern Ireland”.
MOPAC is responsible for delivering the Mayor of London’s Police and Crime Plan and for oversight of the Metropolitan Police Service.
In July 2016 the Metropolitan Police Service named seven law firms to a national legal services panel then estimated to be worth up to £24m over four years.
The successful firms were:
- Clyde & Co;
- Gowling WLG;
- Plexus Law;
- TLT Solicitors;
The framework was divided into four lots with three suppliers appointed to each lot.
