Deadline: Expired

Status: Closed

Sector: Legal

Location of contract: Any region

Value of contract: Not stated

The buyer: General Medical Council (GMC)


The GMC has a substantial and well established in-house legal team. The in-house legal team carries out the majority of the legal work for the GMC in relation to the exercise of its core statutory functions. It is now the sole provider of legal services in respect of the investigation of cases in relation to individual medical practitioners, as well as the conduct on behalf of the GMC of resultant cases before the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service (MPTS) and litigation before the courts of England and Wales.As a consequence the GMC does not anticipate that it will require much (if any) assistance from its external legal services supplier in relation to the day to day delivery of its core statutory functions. It is anticipated that the vast majority of instructions will relate to legal issues associated with any large commercial organisation and / or public sector body as reflected in the statement of requirement.

Complete Tender Coverage

Following Brexit, the new official Find a Tender system has been developed by UK Government to detail all public procurement contract opportunities expected to be over £122, 976 for Central Government or £189,330 for the remainder of the public sector e.g. NHS contracts, Local Authority contracts, Housing Association contracts. Publishing requirements for all of the public sector are in place to ensure transparency, fairness and open competition.

All UK public sector opportunities under these values, but over £10,000 for central government or over £25,000 for other public sector organisations, are still required to be published on Contracts Finder. Scotland, Wales and NI also have their own dedicated sites: Public Contracts Scotland, Sell2Wales, eSourcing NI and eTendersNI.

Complete Tenders have centralised and consolidated all of this information into a single, easy to use platform that is updated hourly with all new opportunities.
