|Lambeth Extends Partnership With Capita|
28 November 2003
The London Borough of Lambeth Executive has agreed in principle to extend its revenues contract with Capita, which was due to end in November 2004.
Capita is now agreeing the detailed contractual arrangements with a view to signing a contract worth approximately £20m for a further five years. The extended contract will encompass Council Tax and Business Rates collection and administration, Benefits IT services, cashiering services and Housing Benefits customer call centre. The contract extension will take the life of the contract up to 2009 (12 years from the initial contract start date in December 1997).
In a statement today, Capita said the contract extension is being negotiated due to the consistent high levels of service and results delivered across the revenues contract, in partnership with Lambeth, over the past six years.
