Firms with existing crime contracts have until 28 April to accept the LAA's offer of a contract extension to 10 January 2016. If the LAA does not receive an acceptance, the firm's contract will end on either 30 June or or 30 September, depending on whether they accepted the previous extension offer. More information is available here. The deadline for the Duty Contract tender, for contracts starting on 11 January 2016 is 12 noon on 5 May. Firms are urged to plan their submissions carefully as the tender rules are complex and the application is demanding. Do not under-estimate how long it will take to check your bid. More information from the LAA can be downloaded here.
