Event description
Legal Aid NSW will conduct a tender process to appoint a WDVCAS service provider in 12 locations across NSW commencing 1 July 2020.

About this Event

New Women’s Domestic Violence Court Advocacy Service (WDVCAS) service agreements will commence on 1 July 2020. Legal Aid NSW will conduct a tender process to appoint a service provider for the WDVCAS in 12 locations across NSW. Eight information sessions will be held in February 2020 to answer frequently asked questions about the tender process and WDVCAS service agreements.

Background

Legal Aid NSW administers NSW Government funding for 29 WDVCASs across the state. WDVCASs provide women experiencing domestic and family violence and their children with information, advocacy, support and referrals, particularly in relation to court processes. WDVCASs are funded through Service Agreements between Legal Aid NSW and incorporated, not-for-profit service providers. More information can be found here.

Information sessions

In preparation for the tender in 2020, Legal Aid NSW will hold eight information sessions in February in metropolitan and regional locations.

The aim of the information sessions is to provide potential tender applicants with answers to frequently asked questions about the tender process and WDVCAS service agreements. A probity advisor will attend the sessions, along with representatives from Legal Aid NSW.

Please note that the tender is for 12 WDVCAS locations only. The existing service provider is being recontracted in the remaining 15 WDVCAS locations. For more information, please visit the NSW Government’s eTendering website (www.tenders.nsw.gov.au).
