This report sets out the rationale for continuing this contract by directly awarding a new contract to Westminster CAB for the Westminster Advice service without competition. There will be no material changes to the existing contract services or to the terms and conditions of contract.?The contract has highly performed against all KPIs for the last five years, delivering value for money for the council and communities – for every £1 spent, residents were able to claim £4 of money due to them.  


The contract is planned to commence on the16th September 2023 for a period of up to 24 months. The contract value will be £2,568,000 over the 24-month period. This equates to the same value as the old contract, plus an agreed 7% inflationary uplift funded from existing sources of funding within the council.
