Purchasing Goods and Services for Schools

Purchasing goods and services for schools can require legal input.

We encourage schools to use our knowledge and experience from advising NHS trusts, SME’s and multi-national companies on commercial law issues, including:

  • advising on procurement procedures, time limits, selection criteria, award criteria and disclosure requirements
  • negotiating and drafting commercial agreements
  • advising on procurement and contractual disputes
  • advising on TUPE
