Coventry University to procure legal panels worth £2m to £8m

Coventry University is to procure a legal services framework worth between £2m and £8m and to be made available to West Midlands universities.

The agreement is to cover:

  1. Corporate/Commercial;
  2. Regularity/Compliance;
  3. Employment Law;
  4. Property and Construction Law;
  5. Funding (UK and EU);
  6. Tax;
  7. Litigation and Dispute Resolution;
  8. Global Compliance Services.

The agreement is expected to be put in place for four years from the award of the contract.

Coventry's proposed framework is the latest in a series of procurement exercises of legal services by universities.

Five university purchasing consortia last month issued a prior information notice on proposals for a £70m national framework.

Also in August, the University of Bradford launched a procurement exercise, while Manchester Metropolitan University announced plans to re-procure its £1.2m framework.

In July Aston University said it planned to appoint three firms to a £600,000 panel.
