CAPITA: TV LICENCE – BBC CONTRACT RENEWAL
Earlier today Capita announced that the BBC contract for the TV Licence has been extended for a further five years until June 2027. It should be noted that Capita have operated this lucrative contract for the last 20 years since the Post Office lost it.
This five-year extension removes a degree of uncertainty for our members as there has been much political and media speculation regarding the continuation of the TV Licence. Clearly this is good news for our members as it will allow job security for a reasonable period.
Reproduced below is the Capita TVL communication from Paul Johnston, TVL Managing Director, confirming this positive development.
A message from Paul – we have agreed a new contract extension with BBC
I have some fantastic news to share with you.
We have secured a five-year contract extension to continue partnering with the BBC to administer the TV Licence in the UK.
The contract renewal will run from July 2022 until June 2027 and is testament to the hard work you have all been doing to support our partner for more than 20 years.
I want to say thank you for your continued support and let’s keep delivering first class services for our client and their customers!
