Painsley Catholic Academy in collaboration with Churchmarketplace and Ltd

(Education Buying) are inviting providers of Legal Services to participate in a formal Preliminary

Market Consultation for a proposed national Framework Agreement for the provision of Legal Services.

Preliminary Market Consultation (PMC) is a “pre-procurement” process that enables contracting authorities and/or

procurement agents acting on behalf of contracting authorities that are subject to the Public Contract Regulations

2015 to seek responses from the market in transparent, fair and equitable manner. The preliminary market

consultation is an opportunity to influence the potential future shape and solution of a future procurement process.

This process is not a procurement process, although it may form part of a procurement. Further details can be

downloaded via Delta eSourcing. The deadline for PMC responses is 12noon on 5th February 2021.

Value excluding VAT: £2,000,000

This contract is divided into lots: Yes

The contracting authority reserves the right to award contracts combining the following lots or groups of lots:

The proposed solution is a Framework Agreement with multiple Lots based on value of the procurement. It is proposed

that providers may submit expressions of interest for one or any combination of Lots throughout the duration of the

DPS. This strategy forms part of the preliminary market consultation process.
