At an FOI tribunal next week at Leicester Magistrates Court (Monday, 22 February 2016) a legal team paid for by taxpayers will do their best to convince a judge that three reports on the Universal Credit IT programme must not be published.

 

It will be the latest hearing in a succession of DWP legal actions to stop a risk register, issues register and a Major Projects Authority project assessment review being published.

 

 

Lawyers for the DWP have compiled a series of “bundles” – case folders. The volume of this legal paperwork hints at the mounting costs of the case which dates back three years.

 

In 2012 IT projects professional John Slater made an FOI request for three Universal Credit reports: the risk register, issues register and milestone schedule. Separately, but around the same time, I requested the project assessment review.

 

The DWP released the milestone schedule last year after refusing several times to disclose it. The DWP is still refusing to release the other three reports. Hence next week’s hearing in which the Information Commissioner is opposing the DWP’s case to keep the reports confidential.

 

 

Well I hope the Information Commissioner doesn't roll over like the OFT did on the Bank Charges !

I can't understand the reluctance to release this data. I would rather know the bad news now than have to wait for the eventual release after millions of pounds (OUR MONEY)have been spent defending the indefensible.

 

I suspect the DWP are under pressure from the government to not release the data as it is likely to show them in a very poor light.

 

What's the betting that when (if) the case is won, IDS will slap a veto on it.
