Capita announces today that it has secured a three-year extension to its contract with the Ministry of Justice (MOJ) to continue to run the Electronic Monitoring Service (EMS).  

The renewed contract is worth £114m over three years and is effective from 1 February 2021. Capita has run EMS since February 2014 and signed its existing six-year contract with the MOJ in 2015 which was due to conclude in 2021.

The renewed contract means Capita will continue to deliver the electronic tagging and monitoring of subjects, who are under curfew or prohibited from entering certain locations, while released on probation, serving a community service order, or on court bail, across the whole of England and Wales. Additionally, the contract will eventually enable Capita to deliver other services for the MOJ, utilising new technologies.

The contract extension will see Capita continuing to build on its record of operational delivery and the significant investment it has made in digital transformation since 2014, which included the introduction of location-based gps monitoring to EMS.

Jon Lewis, Chief Executive Officer, Capita, said: “I am delighted that the Ministry of Justice has chosen to renew our partnership. This is testament to Capita’s strengths in digital transformation and is strongly aligned to our values as a responsible business. The Electronic Monitoring Service continues to deliver better outcomes for both society and subjects, by giving low risk offenders the chance to continue in employment, targeting reoffending behaviour and keeping families together.”
