The Department monitors the financial health of all its major suppliers both before award and throughout the life of a contract. Capita's bid for the provision of the Defence Fire and Rescue project was subject to the fullest range of scrutiny within Government, including an assessment of their financial sustainability and their ability to deliver the required services. This assessment remains valid. Any contract is actively managed to provide early warning of any performance concerns.
