The Defence Reform Act 2014 established the Single Source Regulations Office (“SSRO”) as an independent regulator of the UK Government’s procurement of single source military equipment and services. The SSRO is the custodian of the single source procurement framework and has a number of functions under the Act and the Single Source Contract Regulations 2014.
The SSRO is establishing a legal framework agreement, under which it will appoint up to two Contractors to provide legal services from time to time. The SSRO expects to require legal advice and support to ensure the efficient and effective discharge of its functions.
The types of legal work which the SSRO may require from time to time are wide ranging, but key areas are summarised:
Public law – Defence Reform Act 2014 and Single Source Contract Regulations 2014 (including referrals and determinations thereunder).
Other – relevant legislation and legal matters which concern the functioning of public bodies.
Commercial – Public procurement & Contracts.
Information – Freedom of Information, Data Protection and GDPR.
Employment – Employment law generally and disputes.
The SSRO is seeking to appoint up to two suppliers to the framework agreement, which will run for a term of 3 years.
