Capita invests significant funding each year for the development of initiatives jointly agreed with the SWAN members.
Representatives from the SWAN members and Capita meet every two months to consider making investments in innovative services.
The guiding principles for investment through the Innovation Fund are that initiatives:
- Will be available contractually for SWAN
- Benefit members
- Enhance SWAN service
- Reduce cost or risk
- Will be visible beyond BAU contract
- Can provide exemplar references
- Play to Capita strengths
