Kiss of Death?

NCC's main supplier for 'British Schools for the Future' IT stuff 'Ramesys' (is it just me who finds that name slightly disturbing? Sounds like the sort of company that might sell this. That link is Not Safe For Work btw) has been taken over by Capita, according to a report on the 'Register' website.

Crapita has become a byword for useless public sector outsourcing and regularly features in Private Eye. NCC used them for external Housing Benefits processing a few years back but even they realised their mistake pretty quickly and found someone else.

Ramesys is based in Nottingham. Rumours of a mass exodus of horrified techies fleeing the kiss of death on their careers that is 'Crapita' appearing on their CVs are so far unsubstantiated.
