services across the corporation for the next 10 years. Capita will deliver a
full range of HR services to the BBC including recruitment; the administration
of pay (excluding pensions); some aspects of staff development; occupational

Notes to Editors

Capita is an existing strategic partner for the BBC and already provides a range
of services including licence fee collection.

The contract is for a period of 10 years with the option to break at year 5.

The procurement process follows an internal BBC People review which proposed
that a number of services should be outsourced. The review team identified this
as one of the measures to help put extra resources into programmes as part of
the BBC's radical plans to transform the organisation into a simpler and more
creative digital broadcaster.
