[2011]EWHC 886

On 15 April 2011 the High Court dismissed an application for judicial review of the e-tendering procedure used by the Legal Services Commission. One section of the tender documents submitted by the claimant was incomplete, which meant that the claimant was not awarded a contract. The court found that this was not the result of any fault by the LSC. The LSC was not under any obligation to allow the claimant to provide the missing information or to attempt to answer the relevant questions itself. The LSC was under an overriding duty to treat all tenderers equally and to apply the rules of the procurement procedure consistently and fairly between tenderers.
