Capita wins over second city

Big contract in Birmingham

Capita looks set to grab a massive chunk of local government business Birmingham though a joint venture with the council.

The services group said today that Birmingham City Council’s Cabinet will be issued with a report recommending Capita be its preferred partner for strategic services. Capita said it would work alongside the council in a joint venture, the Service Birmingham Partnership, which would be kicked off with a £424m, ten year contract to handle the city’s ICT. The majority shareholder in the joint venture would be, wait for it, Capita.

Back in June, the council said the final two bidders on the project were IBM and Capita.®
