Kent CC reaches milestone in hunt for commercial partner for legal services

Kent County Council recently issued an OJEU notice inviting expressions of interest in forming a joint venture/alternative business structure with its Kent Legal Services (KLS) arm.

The contract, worth an estimated £100m over the full ten-year term, would also cover the delivery of legal services to the local authority and other clients.

The notice, which can be viewed here, said the county council (KCC) and the successful tenderer would work together “to maximise profits and build on the success of KLS’ past achievements by devising an innovative and ground breaking public-private joint venture”.
