The Ministry of Defence (MoD) has signed a £440m deal with Capita to deliver its Recruiting Partnering Project (RPP).

The contract, valued at around £44m a year for 10 years, is expected to save the armed forces more than £300m.

Capita will work with a range of partners to support the military recruitment and assessment process and the recruitment technology component of the IT platform. It will also provide a tri-service information and communications technology platform to underpin recruitment for the Royal Navy, Army and Royal Air Force.

Neil Polley, RPP project manager at the MoD, said: “This initiative will increase the number and improve the quality of recruits joining the Army.  The contract covers the entire recruiting and selection process for both the Regular Army and the Territorial Army, and will transform the way the Army recruits its officers and soldiers. The contract will release over 1,000 military recruiters back to the front line, and will deliver hundreds of millions of pounds in benefits,” he said.
