These tests are typically carried out before going to court, during care proceedings or are ordered by the court. The Framework will be broken down as follows: Lot 1: DNA Testing (Adults, Children's and Legal Services) Lot 2: Drug & Alcohol Testing (Adults, Children's and Legal Services) Lot 3: Drug Testing (LCC Taxi Licensing Unit) The Collaborative Authority is looking to appoint 3 suppliers who must be able to carry out all forensic testing services (DNA, Drug and Alcohol) across the whole of the Liverpool City Region.
