DVLA awards Capita 5-year contract


DVLA awards Capita 5-year vehicle tax and insurance evasion on road enforcement 
contract

The Capita Group Plc (Capita) has signed a contract with the Driver and Vehicle
Licensing Agency (DVLA) to provide a national Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) service
that includes provision (at DVLA's option) for a Continuous Insurance
Enforcement (CIE) service. The five-year contract, with an option to extend for
a further two years, has an estimated value of £100 million. Capita will take
responsibility for the service on 7 November 2011.

Capita will manage VED and CIE enforcement notifications and immobilise,
remove, store and dispose of unclaimed vehicles through a network of 23
regional pounds. Up to 300 staff in locations across the country will transfer
from the incumbent enforcement service provider to Capita.

Paul Pindar, chief executive of Capita commented: "DVLA is committed to
reducing the level of vehicle tax and insurance evasion and Capita is pleased
to be able to support them to achieve this objective. We have created an
innovative delivery model for a service that will reduce the overall cost of
enforcement, and by reintroducing roadworthy and fully compliant vehicles back
on to the roads, will lessen the environmental impacts associated with
scrapping vehicles."

Simon Tse, DVLA's Chief Executive, said: "Capita has put forward an innovative
proposal that supports DVLA in its commitment to reduce vehicle tax and
insurance evasion and offers the best value for money."
