Capita: government removed safeguards on ILAs


The Financial Times today reports on the evidence given by Capita to the education select committee inquiry into the Individual Learning account Scheme. Company executives say the government removed some of the original safeguards after the system had been designed, in order to reduce bureacracy and persuade new training providers into the market. Checks on training providers were among the elements dropped from the scheme.

Paddy Doyle, Capita's group operations director, admitted that the company didn't do enough to raise the alarm or close loopholes once problems emerged. Capita has repeated its repudiation of suggestions that the computer system itself was breached, repeating that security failures are attributable to the removal of checks and to training providers with authorised access abusing the scheme.
