Invitation to Tender: Retained Legal Advice
Cheshire and Warrington Local Enterprise Partnership (CWLEP) supports economic development and growth in the sub region of Cheshire and Warrington through the distribution and administration of a range of Government and European grants and funds, including the Local Growth Fund, the Growing Places Fund and Evergreen loan funds. The CWLEP also partners with organisations to deliver on an agenda for providing support for business growth and skills development and administers funding for the Northern Powerhouse 11. CWLEP is not an accountable body in its’ own right, Cheshire East Council (CEC) usually providing this role, with respective responsibilities of CEC and CWLEP encapsulated within a Service Level Agreement.
At an operational level CWLEP employs between 20-30 staff and enters into contracts, following the Public Contract Regulations with a variety of third-party suppliers, particularly for Information Technology, office accommodation and services, and consultants.
CWLEP would like to retain a legal firm to provide general advice on a wide range of legal documents in association with and in the course of conducting its business.
