Barnet to review outsourcing partnership with Capita

Barnet Council is considering taking seven services back in-house, under a review of its outsourcing partnership with Capita.

The council has proposing reviewing the agreement to enable a 'realignment' of the partnership.

The council is considering returning control of finance, strategic HR, management of the council’s land and property, highways, regeneration, strategic planning and cemeteries and Crematoriums back in-house.

However, it proposes Capita keeps control of 17 services.

The leader of Barnet Council, Cllr Richard Cornelius, said: 'Our priority is to deliver good quality, value for money services to our residents. Many things are working well and it’s right that we build on them. Where this is not the case, changes are needed.

‘The committee will discuss the proposed review to realign services delivered under the Capita contracts. If the committee approves the recommendations, the review will develop more detailed proposals, but it’s important to stress any changes will only be recommended on the basis that they provide a good deal for the Barnet taxpayer.’
