System Availability

Update: 15/07/2020

We continue to monitor the functioning of the Client and Cost Management System (CCMS) and wanted to highlight these points:

  • if your organisation made a contingency claim, then you will need to make sure those claims are put on to CCMS
  • the Legal Aid Agency (LAA) will issue a debit note for the value of the contingency payment so please ensure that claims of sufficient value are submitted well in time to offset that debit note

The extra in-week payment run for providers took place and we would like to remind providers to check their bank accounts. These payments will be paid by 17 July and no remittance advice will be issued for this. The usual payment dates can be found here:
