More firms will enter the growing market for local government financial services work, according to consultant John Cremin.

Mr Cremin told the IRRV conference in Blackpool yesterday that, alongside established players like Capita, CSL and ITnet, other companies - perhaps from the utilities sector - would be tempted to bid for revenues and benefits contracts.

Mr Cremin, who advises council in-house teams on how to retain work in the face of private sector competition, insisted that a core bid price was now emerging for revenues and benefits work, which he likened to a commodity trading price.

Outlining the key market drivers, he said that the offer of free IT, or the chance to restructure IT provision, was a major influence in councils handing financial services business to the private sector.
