CAPITA PLC: Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) Contract Update
3 October 2012
Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) Contract Update
Capita plc is aware that the Home Office is pursuing discussions with another supplier with the intention of awarding them a contract to support the new Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) operations. Whilst the date of the full handover of services to the new supplier has yet to be finalised, the CRB has advised Capita of its intention to extend the current CRB contract with Capita beyond the current expiry date of 31 March 2013, and the terms of this extension agreement are now being finalised.
Capita is disappointed not to have been selected by the Home Office to support DBS. We believe we have built a strong partnership with the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) successfully delivering the disclosure service for over 10 years. We will now, of course, work with the CRB, and its new partner, to enable the smooth transfer of the service.
