Capita in partnership negotiations with NHSBSA


                 CAPITA IN EXCLUSIVE NEGOTIATIONS WITH NHSBSA                  

Following an extensive procurement process, the NHS Business Services Authority
(NHSBSA) has entered into exclusive dialogue with the Capita Group Plc (Capita)
for the provision of services to transform the efficiency of the processing and
payments of dental claims (DCSS) and a managed IT service (MITI) to support the
Authority, its current portfolio of activities and future growth.

The Dental Contract Support Service (DCSS) involves the business processing and
payment of some 40 million claims made annually by dentists in England and
Wales for NHS dental treatment administered. The Managed IT Infrastructure
(MITI) service is to transform and manage the IT infrastructure supporting the
NHSBSA and its activities, including Dental Services, Prescription Payments and
Counter Fraud.

It is intended that the contract will be finalised in 2009 and that the initial
seven year term to deliver these services will be valued at slightly over £
100m.

This announcement is being made as the NHSBSA are informing all employees of
this decision today. It is expected that approximately 150 employees will
transfer to Capita from the Authority and current suppliers. A further
announcement will be made when the contract is finalised.

                                    -ends-
