Atos and Capita win PIP contract extension ‘because DWP is chained to a corpse’

Post by Admin on Fri Jun 08, 2018 9:44 am

The government’s decision to extend the contracts of two discredited companies that carry out disability benefit assessments has been branded “appalling”, “shocking” and “a complete con”.

The move has also been criticised by the Scottish government.

Sarah Newton, the minister for disabled people, told MPs in a written statement this week that she planned to extend the assessment contracts for the two companies that carry out the personal independence payment (PIP) assessments – Atos and Capita – by a further two years.

On Tuesday 5 June, the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) announced the extension of its contracts with its health assessors, Capita and Independent Assessment Services (formerly Atos Healthcare). The announcement prompted widespread anger over its rewarding of existing contractors’ less-than-satisfactory track record.
