National Audit Office calls for evidence on the impact universal credit is having on both claimants and local stakeholders

Results of the NAO study are scheduled to be published in Spring 2018

The National Audit Office (NAO) has called for evidence on the impact universal credit is having on both claimants and local stakeholders.

Following its two previous reports Universal Credit: early progress and Universal Credit: progress update, the NAO is commencing a third study examining whether the DWP is on course to deliver universal credit in accordance with its plans – to make the full service available to new claimants in all jobcentres by September 2018 and to transfer existing claimants to universal credit by March 2022 – and invites evidence to be emailed direct to the study team.

The final report – which is scheduled to be published in Spring 2018 – will assess whether there are early signs that universal credit is delivering its objectives, and what impact it is having both on claimants and on local stakeholders.

For more information see Rolling-out Universal Credit from the NAO website.
