The Recruiting Partnership Project is a ten-year output based contract between the Army and Capita, designed to incentivise the Provider to deliver the right quantity and quality of recruits. The Main Gate Business Case (MGBC), in September 2011, forecast £267 million of benefits over the life of the project. The revised benefits forecast, approved in May 2016 is £266 million.
The originally planned and actual savings (in £ millions) in each of the requested Financial Years (FY) are shown below:

The shortfall in benefits in the early years reflects additional funding injections including, to enable Defence Recruiting System delivery. We expect these to be offset in later years by increased savings in military manpower costs.
