..Intentions for Future Tenders has just been published.

I will read it and report back.

Here we go in bullet points

Civil tendering for April 2013 post LASPO contracts as early as May – yes May this year.

No plans on Crime before 2015.

A bid round to increase mediation service

Mandatory Telephone Gateway – Debt, Discrimination SEN and Community Care

Specialist Telephone Advice as above but including Housing and Family

Family Supervisor standard to be Children Panel Membership for Public Law

SQM or Lexcel by Contract start date (though this is hardly new).

This was only days ago

The thing to get moving on, for those not already on it, will be Children Panel membership. The Lexcel v SQM decision remains – we are more and more convinced by the former, and a little surprised SQM has even survived.
