    DWP to sack Atos/Capita and start doing (recorded) PIP assessment themselves .

    Well they are threatening to anyway - but only in another 2 years from now.

    https://www.parliament.uk/business/c...omments-17-19/

    5th June 2018:
    The DWP today announced in a written statement that it was intending to extend Atos and Capita’s contracts to provide Personal Independence Payment (PIP) functional assessments for a further two years to “allow for a stable transition to any new provision”, over which period it would develop in-house IT capacity.
    In the same article it's announced that the DWP will pilot recording of PIP assessments. (I thought they had already done that back in 2010?)
    In its formal response to the report, published in April 2018, the Government agreed to the Committee’s key recommendation of recording PIP assessments as standard. Today, it has announced that it will pilot video recording with a view to making it a standard part of the assessment process across Great Britain. This was a further recommendation of the Committee.

    Of course as some point out the DWP have not said they will actually do assessments 'in-house', only that they will develop software 'in-house'.
