Home Energy Efficiency Scheme

Volume 468: debated on Wednesday 28 November 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what the average fee was for administration of a warm front voucher in the latest period for which figures are available; how the fee was calculated; which organisation receives the fee revenues; and if he will make a statement. (168237)

Fees for administrating the £300 voucher scheme are paid to eaga plc, which successfully won the contract to manage the Warm Front scheme following a competitive tendering exercise. The fees were set following a proposal put forward by eaga, which was scrutinised by DEFRA procurement officials to ensure value for money was obtained. For reasons of commercial sensitivity, we are unable to provide specific details on the value of these management fees.
