DVLA Vision Testing Services Contract - further update

13 February 2014

LOCSU has today been informed by DVLA that they have further extended the "standstill" period prior to the contract award to midnight on Thursday, 20th February 2014.

Alan Tinger, LOCSU Chairman said,

"The DVLA has continued to helpfully agree to look at and comment on LOCSU's continuing grounds for a legal challenge in advance of LOCSU incurring the costs of such challenge.

"They kept to their word of providing a response to all matters raised by close of business on Wednesday, 12th February 2014.   We replied again earlier this morning and as a result of the additional representations we made, they have agreed to a further extension of seven days during which period they will consider and respond to our representations.

“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 again including requests for further information.

"It continues not to be appropriate to make any further public comment at this stage but we will continue to keep stakeholders informed."
