FOI Request - Performance Related Contracts

Request 101000281841

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.
