Capita Contract

The purpose of the report was to update Members on the essential features of, and the risks associated with, the final draft of a contract between the Council and Capita Symonds Limited under which the latter would be responsible for providing a planning and building control service for a term of 15 years.  This was intended to provide the basis upon which the Cabinet decided whether or not the authority should enter into the contract, and if so, on the terms set out in the draft or subject to such modifications (if agreed by Capita) as it considers necessary to mitigate the risks as described.
