Calculation of mileage rate used for Variation requests

The request was partially successful.

Dear Child Maintenance Service, (CMS) formally known as Child Support Agency)

I understand the NRP have to pay the travel costs if it is under £10, but what is the official variation calculation for mileage of pence per mile cost by CMS, please explain in detail the formula used and how this calculates inflation i.e. future petrol costs?

Furthermore, so there is no confusion, please tell me the current pence per mile rate that is used to qualify travel cost variations that are submitted?

Then please explain the calculation formula used to obtain that current pence per mile rate figure that is used by CMS?

Yours faithfully,

CM FOI Focal Point, Child Support Agency
