Schools minister Robin Squire today announced that Capita Managed Services has been appointed to administer the issue and redemption of vouchers for the nationwide implementation of the nursery voucher scheme.

Mr Squire said: 'I am pleased to appoint Capita Managed Services to administer the introduction of the scheme throughout the UK. Capita won the contract after competitive tender and offers the best service for both parents and providers. Capita was also appointed for the pilot phase of the scheme and I am confident that it will continue to build on the valuable experience it has already gained.

'The appointment of a contractor is an important step forward in the successful implementation of the scheme nationwide. The competitive tender exercise has resulted in excellent value for money - a cost of significantly less than £10 per child.'

The contract will be worth around £15m over a three year period, or annually about 25% of the total sum set aside for administration and inspection.
