A Scottish housing association has launched the procurement of a legal services framework for up to five years.
Govan Housing Association has divided the framework into the following lots.
- General legal, contractual, procurement, construction, acquisitions and property conveyancing.
- Housing and estate management which includes factoring.
- Governance, financial management and charity.
- Employment law.
The maximum number of lots that may be awarded to one tenderer is three.
The framework is to last for a three-year period with the option to extend for 2 x single 1 year periods solely at Govan’s discretion.
The lots will be awarded on the basis of quality (weighting: 70%) and cost of service (weighting: 30%).
Last week the Wheatley Housing Group, which is headquartered in Glasgow and owns or manages more than 79,100 homes across Scotland, appointed nine law firms and other providers to a legal and associated services framework agreement worth an estimated £7.3m.
