The Health and Safety Executive (HSE today notified bidders for the new gas installer registration scheme that it is awarding the contract to Capita Group.
The contract, which is valued at £14 million per annum, is awarded for a term of ten years and will be signed on 8th September 2008.
The new scheme will strengthen and improve the governance and performance management arrangements between HSE and the new scheme provider.
Capita will have incentives to continuously improve gas safety and services to gas consumers and installers and be held to account through a challenging set of key performance indicators.
Capita will be required to introduce and promote a new independent brand which will provide an excellent opportunity to promote gas safety messages.
The new gas installer registration scheme will run from the 1st of April 2009 and will replace a scheme currently being operated by CORGI.
