    Carillion collapse exposed flaws in UK government policy - MPs

    The collapse of Carillion exposed the risks of using private companies to cut the cost of delivering public services and its failure could be repeated if the government does not learn lessons, lawmakers said on Monday. Carillion, which employed 43,000 people to provide services in defence, education, health and transport, collapsed in January, becoming the largest construction bankruptcy in British history. A report published by a parliamentary committee on Monday said the government's overriding priority for outsourcing had been spending as little money as possible while forcing contractors to take unacceptable levels of financial risks.

    Serco warns taking on Carillion contracts will hit profits this year

    Outsourcing group Serco expects to report a drop in revenues for the first half of this year, and said taking on contracts from collapsed rival Carillion would hit profits. According to Serco, this reduction is due in part to the impact of foreign exchange rates, which accounted for £60m of the lost revenue. The firm said it has been working closely with Carillion’s liquidators to agree acquisition terms for various health contracts after the collapse of the contractor earlier this year.

    Taking lessons from Carillion, Britain toughens outsourcer rules

    Britain is preparing to toughen up contract terms for private companies operating in the public sector over the next 12 to 18 months after the collapse of outsourcing group Carillion (Frankfurt: 924047 - news) , a source familiar with the plans said on Monday. The government, which awards 200 billion pounds of public contracts to private companies every year, plans to force those doing critical work for government departments to provide a "living will" agreement that would pass their work to another supplier in an emergency. Cabinet Office Minister David Lidington said earlier on Monday he was also seeking to make it easier for smaller companies, charities and social enterprises to take on large government contracts, and would demand more transparency and social awareness from public service providers.

    Britain's Serco (SRP.L) has called for more transparency from the government over the award of public contracts to protect companies after rival Carillion went bust, saying the market should not be a "Wild West". Carillion, which took on large infrastructure projects as well as service contracts, collapsed in January largely because of problems with its public building works. Critics accuse the government of encouraging a risk-taking culture in which companies bid aggressively for contracts with thin margins, leaving little leeway when projects hit predictable delays.
