Capita earmarked for Barnet council deal


Plans to award a £32m-a-year contract for a private firm to run Barnet Council's back office services have been revealed.

Capita would operate services including the council's call centre, payroll, information technology and HR for 10 years, if the proposals are approved.

The council claimed the contract would give a guaranteed saving of £120m.
