Reply To: Overpayment Classifications


I noted that but these instructions vary considerably from the Certification Instructions issued by the DWP through the Audit Commission to every Grant Claim auditor in the Country. These instructions – as I have pointed out previously are incorrect in many areas but they are the instructions auditors follow.

The so called simplification of the claim form for 2005/06 has resulted in more problems then before. For example the 31 May date with regard to Rent Service decisions, previously the LA was allowed up to the date of submission of the final claim (which our Auditors consider is the audited claim)

Again until there is clear legislation on subsidy the DWP is able to play games with LAs.
