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.
