2) What risks have been identified, in respect of Capita's current financial position (i.e. significant decrease in share price and profit warnings) specifically on the software they supply and maintain for the council and what steps (if any) are being taken to mitigate those risks?

3) Please also share any risk management reports you have in place around Capita owned software used by the council in the event of Capita withdrawing from the market place.

Yours faithfully,

Mary Redman
