Westminster City Council will retender its public affairs account

next month after deciding to take political monitoring in-house.

Incumbent agency Advocacy, which has held the account for almost three

years, is expected to repitch.



The council’s public affairs brief currently encompasses monitoring and

lobbying but, as part of its ongoing cost-cutting exercise, the council

will be handling monitoring in-house from next month. Fees have been cut

back to an annual total believed to be pounds 12,000.



Head of communications, Simon Morrison said: ’It’s standard procedure to

review contracts at the end of their life. We are looking at the best

value for our rate-payers.’
