The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) is looking for a single firm to advise it on employment and HR issues.
The government department is currently advised by Field Fisher Waterhouse (FFW), but the term of the current contract has come to an end.
A DWP spokesperson said: “The DWP has issued a legal services tender. It’s a re-let of a current contract covering HR legal support, which has reached the end of its term.” The new contract will run from February 2010 to January 2013.
FFW head of employment Richard Kenyon was unavailable for comment.
The DWP is advised by DLA Piper on information services and IT and Sharpe Pritchard on commercial matters. DWP Estates, which looks after the department’s properties, is advised by Lovells.
