To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, what contingency plans his Department has in place in the event that Capita is unable to complete the Defence Fire and Rescue Project contract.
Capita's proposal has been subjected to the fullest range of testing and scrutiny across Government to ensure that the services will be delivered in a sustainable and resilient manner.
Maintaining contingency plans is Defence's routine approach when outsourcing and this includes the Defence Fire and Rescue project in the event of a change in circumstances with Capita. The contingency plans ensure that if the contract was to fail there would be minimal disruption to the delivery of appropriate fire risk management services to Defence.
