We will meet with the lead partners from the seven partner firms on approximately a quarterly basis to review how the consortium is working and any new ideas for improving it. We also have a number of sub groups have been set up with the partner firms to advance specific aspects such as the training programme, the website and the two yearly conference. In addition to the management panel a delivery group has been established. Its main purpose is to come up with and develop new initiatives and for its representatives to sit on the specialist sub groups mentioned before. It also will act as a succession pool for the management panel. The group members are: Francesca Whyley - Gedling District Council Barbara Hearst - Leicester City Council Sam McGinty - Loughborough University Mona Sachdeva - Nottingham City Homes Elizabeth Warhurst - North West Leicestershire District Council Members are kept informed of developments by newsletters issued on roughly a quarterly basis but if you have any ideas, queries or views on the consortium please email the co-ordinator Stuart Leslie [/su_tab] [su_tab title="Authority members"]

How to instruct a partner firm guidance

There are detailed provisions in schedule 3 of the framework contract, which can be viewed on the EM Lawshare website, about how to instruct partner firms. This is intended as a brief guide. Authorised Officers
  • Only your “authorised” staff, that is officers named in your organisation’s entry in this member pack, can instruct partner firms.
  • You can add to or change your authorised officer by contacting the Website Administrator, James Cavanagh, Geldards
Deciding which firm to instruct When deciding which firm to instruct there are two main alternatives. You can either just instruct one direct or hold a mini competition with two or more partner firms. Direct order If you decide to go direct to one partner firm you should email or phone their 'Key Contact' listed in this pack and agree with them:
  • what work you want them to do
  • who at the firm will do the work
  • what the price will be or how it will be calculated
You should confirm your agreement to the Key Contact in an email or in writing. Within 2 days the instructed firm must complete and send to you an Instruction Pro Forma. Mini Competition You may decide, particularly for larger pieces of work, to seek tenders from two or more of the partner firms. There is advice on the website about how to conduct a mini tender but here are the key points:
  • draw a brief to send to tendering firms that is as comprehensive and precise as possible about what you want them to do
  • email the brief to the Key Contact at the firms you have chosen to tender
  • make clear to tenderers what information you want returned by the tender deadline
  • as a minimum you should normally ask for details of the fee earners who will carry out the work, how the work will be undertaken and the proposed fee
  • make clear how and when you want the tenders returned
  • give firms a reasonable time to prepare and submit their tender
  • specify an officer who can be contacted (email only) to clarify any matter in the tender
  • circulate any clarification queries (anonymised) and answers to all invited firms at the same time
  • draw up criteria all tenders can be judged against
  • open all tenders at the same time after the stated deadline for receipt
Should a firm invited to tender decide not to they should inform you before the deadline for receipt. Once you have marked the tenders against the predetermined criteria appoint the successful firm and formally instruct them. After you have instructed the successful inform the unsuccessful firms and give reasonable feedback as requested. Within two days of being instructed the successful firm must send you a completed Instruction Pro Forma. [/su_tab] [su_tab title="Fees & reports"]

Fees, invoices and update reports

Fees Before any work you commission begins you need to agree with the instructed firm the basis on which you will pay them. This can be a fixed fee, capped fee or on hourly rates. If it is to be by hourly rates then the partner firm cannot charge more than the rates for their different types of fee earner. These rates are fixed for the four years of the framework contract and have been sent to members lead contact to distribute to officers who are authorized to instruct partner firms. Updating There are now very specific requirements, in schedule 4 of the contract about when invoices must be sent, to who and what information they must contain. The following is a summary. Invoices must:
  • not be issued until the Instruction Pro Forma (page 38) for that work has been completed by the partner firm and sent to you.
  • only relate to one matter and clearly state the name of that matter and the case number allocated to it by you.
  • list the fee earners who have done work on it and their hourly rates
  • detail the work done and time taken by each fee earner
  • include a narrative of work undertaken on each date
  • specify the total billed amount for that invoice
  • include the total billed amount to date for that matter
The contact also stipulates that, unless otherwise agreed, invoices must be sent to the member officer who issued the instruction and on the same date each month. Disbursements There are detailed provisions in paragraphs 10 and 11 of the contract specification about which disbursements can and cannot be charged for and if charged for at what rate. In brief the following cannot be charged for:
  • travel time (unless working on your matter)
  • travel costs and expenses (e.g. trains, fuel for cars)
  • non bulk photocopying
Partner firms can recharge for the following but only at cost unless otherwise agreed:
  • court fees
  • Land Registry fees etc
  • bulk photocopying
Partner firms can recover hotel accommodation and counsels fees but only if you have given your prior approval. All chargeable disbursements must be itemised separately on an invoice. [/su_tab] [su_tab title="Pro forma"]
