Under the current Approved Enforcement Agencies (AEA) contracts the AEA’s are paid £75 for successfully executed Warrants of Arrest. We are in the process of procuring a new set of contracts for AEA services and the Invitation to Tender was released on 1 July 2019. The pricing for Warrant of Arrest services shall be established by this procurement exercise. The price for Warrants of Arrest Services forms part of the evaluation process, through which value for money will be determined. We plan to award contracts in December 2019, with services to commence in May 2020.

We expect these new contracts will save the taxpayer more than £25m over the next five years, every penny of which will be reinvested into the justice system.
