DVLA Vision Testing Services Contract

11 February 2014

LOCSU has today been informed by DVLA that they have extended the "standstill" period prior to the contract award to midnight on Thursday, 13 February 2014.

Alan Tinger, LOCSU Chairman said,

"The DVLA extended the "standstill" period yesterday by 24 hours to midnight on Tuesday, 11 February 2014. This was because they had helpfully agreed to look at and comment on LOCSU's grounds for a legal challenge in advance of LOCSU incurring the costs of such challenge.

"They have today advised us that they will "provide a complete response to all matters raised" by close of business on Wednesday, 12 February 2014. This will still allow time for a formal legal challenge by LOCSU, if the response from DVLA does not satisfactorily deal with all the potential grounds for legal challenge put forward including requests for further information.

"LOCSU is being advised throughout this process by experienced EU/Competition Lawyers and it is not appropriate to make any further public comment at this stage but we will continue to keep stakeholders informed."
