On 15 April 2011, the High Court dismissed an application for judicial review of an e-tendering procedure used by the Legal Services Commission (LSC). The case was brought by Hoole & Co against the LSC in relation to a tender for provision of immigration legal services. LSC had rejected the bid on the basis that the tender documents submitted electronically were incomplete. The claimant attributed the fact that the tender was incomplete to defective technology and argued that the LSC was under a duty of fairness to alert the bidder to the fact that relevant information was missing. The High Court found that there was no evidence that the tender equipment was defective, and under the circumstances, no duty on LSC to seek clarification from the bidder.
