G4S Wins First Central Government Contract Since Tagging Scandal

G4S has won its first central Government contract since the prisoner tagging scandal saw the group vilified by ministers. The group announced it had won a three-year contract worth £4 million to provide facilities management services at three sites for HM Revenue & Customs in Salford, Edinburgh and Glasgow. The contract win follows last week’s approval from the Cabinet Office of the steps G4S has taken to strengthen its governance in wake of the tagging debacle that effectively barred the group from fresh central Government work. Last month G4S was forced to repay £109 million to settle with the Ministry of Justice after overcharging for tagging offenders, some of whom were back in prison, overseas or dead. While the HMRC work is worth only a small sum, G4S is waiting to hear whether it has succeeded in landing a contract running to tens of millions of pounds from the Department for Work and Pensions. It is associated with the Government’s Work Programme for helping the long-term unemployed back into the workplace.
