Client: University of Nottingham
Area of Law: Commercial
We provided advice to the University of Nottingham for the full European procurement of its student management intranet system to support students and staff across its 15,000 students in campuses in the UK, China and Malaysia.
The tender included managing the University’s existing and complex solution delivery agreement and issues with a supplier that went into administration. It also involved the transfer of some university staff under TUPE regulations to the new supplier.
This significant and sophisticated project involved us providing end-to-end support as an advisor and critical friend. Working with the University’s IT and in-house legal teams, our tasks included giving procurement and commercial advice, drafting relevant terms, reviewing tenderers’ responses, and supporting negotiations with the potential bidders and the successful supplier.
