Capita has secured a two-year extension worth approximately £112m to its contract to deliver Personal Independence Payment (PIP) assessments for the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).
In addition to the DWP contract, Capita also announces today a two-year extension, worth approximately £33m, to its PIP assessment contract with the Department of Communities (DfC) in Northern Ireland.
PIP, which replaced the Disability Living Allowance in 2013, is designed to help people with a long-term condition or disability lead independent lives by providing additional financial support.
Capita is contracted by the DWP and the DfC to deliver functional assessments and produce reports which are reviewed by government case managers alongside other evidence.
Jon Lewis, Chief Executive Officer, Capita, said: "These contract extensions are testament to the commitment of our healthcare team, our consistently strong operational performance, and the strength of our longstanding relationship with government."
