S5W-04276: Lewis Macdonald (North East Scotland)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 1 November 2016

To ask the Scottish Government how much it has spent under each Lot of its Legal Services Framework since May 2016.

Answered by: James Wolffe 16 November 2016

Where the Scottish Government Legal Directorate (SGLD) does not provide legal advice to the Scottish Government then the Scottish Government procures its legal advice from existing legacy contracts awarded under SGLD Frameworks (e.g. the SGLD Legal Services Framework 2007 and 2011) as well as the Scottish Government Collaborative Framework Agreement for Legal Services 2015 (the SG Collaborative Framework). The spend under each Lot since May 2016 shows the spend under existing legacy contracts as well as the Scottish Government spend under the SG Collaborative Framework.
