Computer problem caused G4S Olympic security staff shortage

The Independent on Sunday has revealed that the reason that G4S couldn’t get enough staff to handle the Olympics might have been related to a problem with an internal computer system.

An insider told the newspaper that the root cause of the problem with G4S was its internal computer system which had failed to calculate staff rostering.

The armed forces had to be called in when it became clear that G4S, which provides security services, could not meet its obligations in terms of providing security personnel. The Government announced it was deploying 3,500 troops to cover the shortage.
