Enabling re-investment in public services by building sustainable revenue for government

We are helping government create new revenue streams by applying commercial expertise, transformation capabilities, business management and development experience to maximise the potential of existing assets.

HM Treasury estimates that central government holds latent intangible assets worth £170bn including intellectual property, brand, expertise and data. With the right support, these assets will provide an essential resource to help fund public services for many years to come.

Capita is a first-hand witness to the benefits of commercialising assets to drive revenue for the public sector, including the jointly owned – with DEFRA - Food and Environment Research Agency (Fera) which provides scientific services to government and commercial customers across the agri-food supply chain, in the UK and overseas.

Together with GovTech pioneer PUBLIC, we’ve produced a report which highlights a valuable latent income - knowledge assets – to help the UK public sector leverage some £5 billion per year.

Estimated to be worth some £150 billion in total, publicly-owned knowledge assets are created in the course of delivering public services, including data and digital services, brands and designs, knowledge and research, and capabilities and skills.
