- The North West Legal Consortium Invitation to Tender (ITT) For the Provision of Legal Services by Solicitors
- Sefton Metropolitan Borough Council (Sefton) as lead contracting authority for the Consortium wishes to procure a framework contract to provide external legal services from firms of solicitors to support the in-house provision of its member organisations. References in the tender documents to the Consortium mean, where the context so requires, Sefton as lead authority for the Consortium, and/or the Consortium acting through Sefton and/or each and every member of the Consortium.
