G4S government contract ban ends even while SFO investigation continues

Thu, 10/04/2014 - 13:26 -- nick

Work programme provider G4S is to have its ban on applying for new government contracts ended - after just one year.

The company was pulled up after it was found to have overcharged the state by £109 million for the electronic tagging and monitoring of prisoners.

But the Cabinet Office has backtracked on this ban, saying G4S had taken "positive steps" to change its practices and engaged "constructively" with the government.
