DWP jargon

Post by El-dudeareno on Wed Jul 26, 2017 1:18 pm

I was wondering if the DWP has its own jargon to be aware of when I am on the 'casting couch' in there open plan offices Suspect . I gather ‘off-stream’ refers to people in employment or off the figures such as on the Work Program. So are there any other terms I should be aware of? Could be nice to have a dwp-dictionary, of all the acronyms. Such as ASE- actively seeking employment, UCB- unacceptable   claimant behaviour.   Basketball

If you have ever submitted a subject access request, they are very often sent to you with a document of all the DWP abbreviations, presumably to help you interpret the computerised records (if these were part of your request).

It could be worth submitting a SAR just to get the list of abbreviations sent to you Wink

This is a start! Very Happy

Your personal information – understanding DWP abbreviations

Decision makers’ guide: abbreviations: staff guide

Not sure if this is the right place?

Lots of performance jargon here:

With regard to office slang, my pet hates are 'buzzword' and the phrases 'blue sky thinking' and 'thinking outside the box'. It is not that I lack creativity / imagination or the capacity to visualise the abstract; I just dislike corporate clichés because I am not corporate minded (sheeple) lol!

Thanks Helping-Hand sunny , do you know how to download this pdf file and attach it to this page, so if the site goes down etc it is still around? Usually there is a 'attach file' option, doesn't seem to be one here on this forum?  cyclops

Wow there Caker, I didnt know you hated all of this business-babble. Can we "Look under the bonnet" here  and see the 'Synergy' of the situation. So we can 'touch base' while missing the  'elephant  in the room' and 'workshop' the issue to an eye to 'Running it up the flagpole' at a future date in my diary...   :rabbit:

flower lol!
