The contract with Capita to manage the existing electronic monitoring service on an interim basis, until the new service comes into operation, will cost a total of £67.1m up to December 2014.

Under these interim arrangements, G4S and Serco no longer have a direct role in delivering the service on the ground – and we have far greater oversight of costs and charging than previously, with direct access to the suppliers’ systems.

Does this answer the above question?
