Decisions made under the tender process for the award of legal aid contracts are a matter for the Legal Services Commission (LSC), which is responsible for administering the legal aid scheme.

The LSC advises that the National Youth Advocacy Service's (NYAS) tender to deliver family legal aid services was unsuccessful because it failed to submit a tender compliant with the rules of the tender process. The LSC announced on 23 January 2012 that an additional tender round will be conducted in February which NYAS will be able to apply for, should they choose to do so.
