West Sussex County Council has brought in Capita to provide IT services in a seven year deal worth an "initial" £56 million. Capita and the council say the deal will provide a "flexible and sustainable IT service at significantly lower cost".
Jeremy Northeast, head of IT operations for West Sussex County Council, said, "Capita's solution maximises the investment the council has made in IT facilities and technology." He said Capita's involvement will "underpin wider organisational transformation and realise significant savings for the authority".
