The Tees Valley Combined Authority is to establish a group-wide legal services framework agreement worth an estimated £5m-7.5m over four years.
It said the agreement would “provide specialist legal support in a range of disciplines which will be divided into Lots.
“Prospective providers for respective Lots will be required to demonstrate previous experience in their field and within specific sectors. It is recognised that there may be some cross-over between Lots, and some commissions may span more than one Lot.”
The estimated value for the agreement is subject to the needs and resources of external funders, the combined authority said.
The closing time and date is 12 pm on 28 June 2021.
The contract is expected to start on 2 August 2021 and run until 31 July 2025.
