West Sussex County Council and Capita partnership


With Capita as a partner we were able to establish strong working relationships and tackle the transformation of services together. Combining our knowledge within the Council and Capita’s experience and capability of delivering transformational programmes, we have made significant step changes in the way we deliver services.

Improving financial processes at West Sussex County Council


By re-shaping service delivery and through Capita’s investment in new technologies, we now run a much slicker and effective finance service. It’s enabled us to benefit from costs savings, to transform our procurement process and fundamentally, improve performance for our suppliers and service users.

Redesigning administrative services at West Sussex County Council


West Sussex had made good progress in making changes in our back office but the partnership with Capita has enabled us to really make the savings we needed to. With Capita’s support, we now have a more streamlined and resilient administration function which was achieved without any impact on service delivery - a great example of partnership working.
