1 Business support Taking care of your back-office enabling you to focus on core and achieve strategic objectives.

2 Business support forms the backbone to service delivery Behind every service delivered by a local authority, there is a need for reliable and highly productive back-office operational processes. As councils face ongoing financial challenges as a result of the Government s spending review, the delivery of public sector is changing. Councils are being asked to deliver more for less, while improving and achieving cost savings. Capita s market leading business support is helping local authorities to streamline back-office processes across a wide range of service areas. By re-shaping processes and utilising technology, our proven model enables our customers to: Deliver more efficient and consistent back-office functions Free up resources to focus on front-line Benefit from increased productivity Generate sustained cost savings. Combining our scale, expertise and highly-skilled people, we are considered a trusted partner for delivering both everyday and transformational administrative. Key benefits Cost savings across the whole service through process re-engineering and using technology as an enabler Greater resilience across the whole Council through the provision of consolidated teams of multi-skilled resources Focus on core by releasing capacity within retained to focus on the front-line delivery Improved efficiency and consistency of processes - by eliminating duplication Improved visibility - of work volumes and management of service targets Reduction in accommodation space supporting local authority accommodation strategies and contributing towards cost savings Enhanced management information - to monitor key performance indicators Better staff morale and team work - through improved performance management, creating clearly-defined career paths and supporting staff in undertaking Business Administration NVQs.

3 case study Consolidating common processes at Swindon Borough Council Since 2007, Capita has been working in partnership with Swindon Borough Council to provide business support to the borough s children s social care team, in what has been the first such initiative of its kind. As a result of an overhaul of the Council s system, Capita has provided a number of solutions which increase the speed and accuracy of admin processing, while remaining aware of the sensitive nature of the documents being processed. Working together, administrative support for the Council s children s social care division has improved, creating jobs in the region while alleviating the administrative pressures which had been put on social workers, enabling them to now spend more time making visits to children considered at-risk and improving general service levels for residents. As a result of the business support, Swindon Borough Council has seen: A reduction in turn-around time for minutes of meeting paperwork from cases involving at risk children. An increase in the number of jobs with career progression opportunities created as a result of the administrative support roles. More social workers concentrating on social care duties as opposed to admin tasks Financial savings which can be redeployed back into the social care division.

5 Our approach At the heart of our service delivery is the need for highly-skilled and motivated employees. As a result we have developed a people-centric approach that combines state-of-the-art technology to maximise efficiency and productivity of business support process. Our service delivery model typically includes: Resource management People development Process redesign Technology enablement By implementing processes that deliver flexibility and agility, it provides resilience during peaks in operational demand and helps eliminate single points of failure. Our training and development plans guarantee a high quality and motivated workforce, to offer a balance between expert resources in specialised to up-skilling employees to work across multiple. Through reviewing and redesigning processes we maximise opportunities for enhanced efficiency and productivity. For example through the consolidation if common processes while protecting value-adding, specialist processes. By maximising the investment that a council has already made in technology and investing further where significant returns on investment can be made. Developing expert resources We recognise that process re-engineering often requires and element of cultural change and take great care in supporting employees throughout this process. We invest in fully-integrated training plans which include the up-skilling and crosstraining of employees to: Ensure resources have the skills necessary to deliver under the selected operational model Enhance the talent and development of our employees Widen the skill-set of employees to enable cross-working to enhance the resilience and continuity of Council during fluctuations in workloads and resource availability Deliver synergies and similarities between specialist provided to various departments. How we deliver Our business support solution has the capability to deliver a wide range of. However we recognise that due to the varying needs of councils and the sensitivities associated with certain, there is not a one-size fits all model to delivery. Therefore we listen and understand the specific requirements of the Council and tailor our delivery accordingly. For example, for certain, such as Adult s and Children s Social Care, the provision of locally based specialist support is important to maintain the administrative links with the front-line delivery teams. However for other central, such as procurement, an off-site or consolidated approach may be more appropriate and aligned to the financial and efficiency goals of a local authority.

6 Choice of delivery Our customers can use one or more of our resourcing delivery models depending on the provision of. Each of the resourcing delivery models are intrinsically linked to ensure that there is always suitable resources available to enable a resilient service to the Council. Specialist resources On-site teams of pooled resources to provide specialist functions Office resource hub Off-site multi-skilled resource teams delivering cross-council support Models of delivery Embedded For that are more effectively delivered by retaining them within a specific Council team case study Technology enablement at the London Borough of Harrow In 2005 Capita began a ten year partnership with Harrow Council to deliver its business transformation programme across the borough. Harrow set out to change the way its frontline staff deliver council to citizens to radically improve the residents experience. At the same time it wanted to save as much as possible on back office functions and procurement. To support the delivery of Harrow s business support functions we worked closely with the Council to implement new technology solutions to enable process re-design and improvement. This includes: The implementation of a new records management solution and workflow system to enable the use of electronic documents across multiple departments Paper documents are now centrally scanned and sent via workflow, to the correct department for processing Introducing the use of tablet PCs for operatives who work remotely to enable real time access to information on back office processing levels, providing increased flexible working The ability to access accurate management information (MI) from the system from each processes and department which is supporting further improvements and enhanced management of fluctuations in demand.
