Description:
DSD, SSA requires consultancy advice on several work packages for to ensure successful implementation of the NI Universal Credit Programme. In Great Britain the overall administration of Universal Credit will be led by one department, DWP – as opposed to today’s complex delivery of the current benefits through three organisations - DWP, HMRC and Local Authorities. People will have one system to contact rather than having to repeat information to three separate bodies. As a simpler system Universal Credit will reduce the scope for error on the part of recipients and administrators and will also reduce the incentive for people to commit fraud by failing to declare work. The new linkages between tax and benefits systems will also make it easier to detect fraud. In Northern Ireland the Department for Social Development (DSD) is the lead department for delivery of Universal Credit. To take forward the programme, the DSD Permanent Secretary has established the Northern Ireland Universal Credit Programme. Given the programme’s size and complexity it is not possible to definitively specify at this stage the areas in which the programme team will require advice. However, based on the current programme of activities specific work packages have been identified.
