The Ministry of Defence would expect that any contractor working in these locations would undertake a range of measures that would effectively mitigate threats to employees.

Many of these challenges including some of the steps taken to address them are set out in the National Audit Office's report.</p><p>The Government has established a Strategic Partnering Programme which monitors performance of companies such as Capita across HMG contracts. This enables those closest to the day-to-day delivery, in this case the recruitment experts within both Capita and the Army, to work together with contract staff to make improvements. The aim is to resolve issues at the operating level using this expertise, rather than escalating the issue.</p> more like this
