The 24 agencies are only those wishing to be primary contractors. The success of subcontractors such as Citizens Advice will depend on whether their partner agency - in this case Shaw Trust - receives a contract. (See: Citizens Advice comes clean about compulsory Pathways role). However, as Shaw Trust have won through to the next round in every region, it is extremely likely that they will win at least some contracts.
