The London Universities Purchasing Consortium has fired the starting gun on the procurement of a legal services framework worth anywhere between £4.8m and £52m.
The LUPC, which has more than 60 universities and colleges as members, said it envisaged a maximum number of seven participants to the framework agreement.
The agreement will last for three years, subject to one renewal. It is not divided into lots.
The LUPC said: “Our aim is to establish a highly competitive legal services framework agreement for member institutions, taking advantage of our geographic concentration in and around London.”
