Hi Peter,
I would also argue that it is usually an accurate description! What other classification would be more appropriate?

You could argue (in some cases) that it is more LA than DWP but, having exposed the LA’s to this additional potential for error by the set out migration process, the DWP are significantly contributing? i.e. an LA cannot be expected to fully negate errors in the labyrinth of the parallel systems the DWP has created.
