A Specialist Housing Court was first proposed a year ago, and the MHCLG has now issued a “Call for Evidence”.
Our experienced team of procurement solicitors can offer support and advice on all aspects of procurement, procurement challenges and state aid.
When a health and social care provider bids to enter into a supply contract, a works contract or a services contracts, the award of the contract will be covered by European and procurement law. A key piece of legislation in relation to the procurement of works, services or supply contracts is the public contracts regulations, which set out how procurement processes should be run.
At Anthony Collins Solicitors, we use our extensive sector, procurement- and European-law knowledge and experience to work in partnership with you to advise and support with all aspects of procurement processes, including strategic procurement advice in relation to policies and procedures, advice on state-aid law and funding arrangements and bringing and defending procurement challenges.
Procurement challenges can arise when unsuccessful bidders or the contracting organisation make claims of the procurement process being run unfairly. If procurement challenges arise, our specialist team of procurement solicitors can advise on how to deal with the challenges in an effective and efficient way.
We work with bidders and contracting authorities to defend and bring claims of unfair procurement processes. As experienced mediators, we can support both parties to reach a workable resolution through mediation; avoiding costly and time consuming court proceedings. If a bidder or contracting organisation feels that the procurement process has been run unfairly we can advise on whether they have a case and assess the risk involved of bringing the challenge.
