FOI Request - Performance Related Contracts
The purpose of the request is to try and establish if and how many local authorities enter into gain share or performance related contracts during the last 5 years.
Definition of gain share/performance related contract – An agreement entered into by the local authority whereby the contractor is paid purely on performance or receives additional payments through over performing in their services.
Examples of these may be:
• Negotiating or renegotiating contracts on behalf of the authority
• Transformation projects where by the contractor receives payments related to efficiencies and benefits delivered
• Increased performance of services (i.e. increased recycling rates)
• Delivering savings or other financial benefits
The information requested in Appendix 1 is required for the previous 5 years (i.e. since 2009). Whilst our preference is to try and ascertain exact figures, we appreciate this may be difficult and very time consuming; therefore please provide an estimate based upon the ranges provided.
This information is not held and is therefore exempt under Section 17 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.
