Some more on this issue of performance measurement through a more recent FoI request:
Dear Department for Work and Pensions,
On Page 68, paragraph 273 in the publication “Social Justice: transforming lives”
(http://dwp.gov.uk/docs/social-justice-transforming-lives.pdf), Iain Duncan-Smith states that one of the cornerstones of success will be to “agree clear parameters for success”. What such parameters were agreed and are in place to measure the success or otherwise of the WCA? Please also provide the data history for each parameter.
There are no specific targets set for the WCA, other than for it to be as fair and accurate as possible.
It appears Government Ministers can say what they like to impress, even if it is an outright lie.
