G4S to reimburse the MoJ £108.9m for electronic tagging overpayments

March 12, 2014 11:54 am

The Secretary of State for Justice Chris Grayling has released a Written Ministerial Statement announcing that security firm G4S has agreed to reimburse the Ministry £108.9m plus VAT for overpayments as part of the contract to provide electronic tagging to offenders. However, the ban on it being awarded public contracts has still not been lifted, as the Cabinet Office is reported as still being in discussion with G4S regarding its corporate renewal programme.

The sum also includes £4.5m to cover the cost of overpayments made on two contracts held by G4S for facilities management in the courts, both of which were referred to the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) in December.
