It became an independent company with 33 staff as a result of a management buy-out in 1987, led by Rod Aldridge, and was first listed on the London Stock Exchange in 1991. Capita continued to grow year on year. In March 2006 Executive Chairman Rod Aldridge OBE resigned in the aftermath of claims that contracts awarded to the Group were influenced by his loan of £1 million to the Labour Party. Aldridge resigned saying that he denied the claims, but to avoid any lingering doubts about it, he was leaving the company. Aldridge is a life-long Labour supporter, and had overseen the company's growth from a small company in 1987 to a FTSE 100 member in 2006.[4] In February 2007, a Capita office in Victoria, London was subject to a letter bomb attack. One person was injured.[5] On October 2, 2009, one of Capita's businesses (Capita Financial Group) announced plans to move some of its operations from London to Leeds.[6][7][8] Operations Capita works across eight markets, being local government, central government, education, transport, health, life and pensions, insurance, and other private sector organisations (including financial services). Examples include a television licence fee contract won from the Post Office for the BBC; management of call centres for many government initiatives such as the London congestion charge (although this has recently transferred to IBM); and provision of IT services, including web hosting and helpdesk support, to many county and city councils, many LEAs, the Driving Standards Agency and the National Rail (NCCA). Capita manage the Criminal Records Bureau for the Home Office. In 2002, when mandatory CRB-vetting of all workers with children was brought in, a large number of teachers were temporarily unable to work after Capita's systems had difficulty with the workload and were subsequently overwhelmed, meaning that the start of the academic year was delayed in places. Poor systems specifications and last-minute changes in government policy by the then Secretary of State for Education, Estelle Morris are believed to be major causes for these delays.[9] Capita Financial Administrators (CFA), was recently fined £300,000 for having poor anti-fraud controls by the Financial Services Authority.[10] Capita also provide outsourced HR and Recruitment services for the BBC, though heavily criticised for transferring 260 jobs from London to Belfast.[11] The contract came into effect on 1 April 2006. Capita also intended to enter into the legal services market and entered into a funding arrangement with the Law Firm Optima Legal Services Limited which saw them, in the period between May 2006 to the end of 2009 invest a total of £36,700,000 (thirty six million, seven hundred thousand pounds) by way of investment loans into Optima.[12] As part of the funding arrangement Capita Group had the option of acquiring the shares of Optima Legal Services for the nominal sum of £1 upon the full implementation of the Legal Services Act 2007 which would make ownership of law firms by the likes of Capita possible. It is thought that such Alternative Business Structures ("ABS") could be lawful around October 2011.[13] However, on 9 August 2010 it was reported that the Solicitors Regulatory Authority ("SRA") had found that the arrangement breached its rules in that it effectively amounted to an ABS.[14] As a consequence, Optima Legal Services Lead Litigation and Property Partners, Philip Robinson and Anthony Ruane respectively were both severely reprimanded by the SRA for what was found to be professional misconduct and only narrowly avoided referral to the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal [15] and Adrian Lamb, former CEO of Optima Legal Services Limited, left the business in June 2010.[16] Property, Engineering & infrastructure services are provided under the Capita Symonds brand. Education services - Schools Information Management Software a Management information system used in 95% of primary and secondary schools across the country to record many aspects of student data.[17] In March 2009, Capita SIMS was said to be responsible for sending a truancy warning notice to the family of a Cheshire school student who had died two months before.[18] Individual Learning Account - A £290million scheme intended to give financial support to adult learners that was opened in 2000 and scrapped in 2001 following widespread and massive fraud.[19] Connexions Card - A £109million scheme that involved issuing 16 to 19 year olds with smart cards that recorded their lesson attendance and rewarded them with discounts on consumer goods. It ran from 2002 until it was terminated in 2006 owing to lack of uptake.[20] Education Maintenance Allowance for the Learning and Skills Council[21] Financial performance The Company's results are as follows: Year Sites People Turnover (£ million) Pre-tax profit (£ million) 1984 1 2     1987 1 33     1991 11 320 25   1992 15 687 33   1996 60 3,500 112 12.3 1998 80 5,000 238 27.1 1999 100 7,000 327 36.3 2000 120 8,500 453 51.2 2001 140 13,000 691 72.1 2002 200 17,000 898 98.2 2003 210 19,000 1,081 121.2 2004 230 23,000 1,282 148.6 2005 250 24,000 1,436 177.2 2006 250 27,000 1,738 193.2 2007 300 29,000 2,073 228.7 2008 300 36,000 2,441 226.6 2009 300 36,800 2,687 258.1 Media profile Capita is a frequent target of the satirical magazine Private Eye due to its alleged record of incompetence and impropriety.[22][23] Senior management Paul Pindar joined Capita in 1987, he has been chief executive since 1999.
