Having Contractions

I waited all Friday for news on the process for gaining a new 6 month CDS contract in January. It turned up a bit too late to post so I saved it for this morning.
The long and short of it is that you will not need to express an interest or “tender” for a contract rather you have, in effect, up to 4pm on Wednesday 31st October, to sign up to the new contract. This will be followed up by the submission of your numbers of employed Duty Solicitors by the end of November. The new contract, involving Duty rotas based upon the above, will begin on January 14th 2008 with a further contract round in July and ultimately Best Value Tendering to follow.
There will be, we believe, no consultation or negotiation. Stay tuned in for further information.
