Customer Question
I have been running an...
I have been running an afterschool care service at a local primary school for 11 years, last year it was put out to tender for this school year, I was advised I did not win the tender, however the company that did win, has not got the employees it needs , using volunteers , or the service approval it should have had , I can no longer run my business as it was, because I can't find anywhere locally near the school to operate, and my business was run from the school for those students.
Parents have indicated they would use my service if I was able to operate close by. Should the school have allowed a tender applicant that was not able to start with the proper licences and employees?

Hello my name is***** am a solicitor in NSW who will help with your inquiry today. Basically it is up to the school to check on whether those who are successful in the tender are capable of running the service and while technically they would be foolish to not check with the successful tenderer whether they have the right number of employees required or the proper licences, it is really a risk that they take on, not something that you can take action about. However, do you know whether the funding for after school care was provided through a government grant given to the school or does the school get a tax benefit from having the after school care service made available to them? If so, there may be some rules around that as to who they grant the contract to that I could look into for you.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
