Cabinet Office requires legal service for £50m framework

6th February 2020

The Minister for the Cabinet Office is looking for a provider for a legal services framework. The contract is valued at £50 million.


Crown Commercial Service (CCS), on behalf of the Cabinet Office, intends to put in place a pan government collaborative agreement for the provision of rail legal services. This framework is to be used by the Department for Transport (DfT), and related organisations which have a significant programme of rail franchises, major works and projects that require specialist rail legal services. Parliamentary agents may also be required. CCS will work in partnership with DfT and the Government Legal Department to establish this panel. The potential benefits of such a panel include:

  • providing a more focused framework to give the market greater availability of work
  • ready access to highly experienced rail legal advisers
  • choice and competition, driving value for money
  • minimising the time and administrative burden to contract work

The estimated date of publication of the contract notice is 24 September.
