    The e-mail accompanying the Initial Estimate Form (which was sent to someone in IT, not me the Benefits Manager) has gone missing. Can someone let me know the Departmental growth forecasts for 2009/10?

    I have added in £ 1 million of extra expenditure as a result of CHB changes. I have reminded the Bens Manager that the effects of this will need to be estimated again in October as expenditure will not have been made.

    The figures I prodiuced for my current LA are nowhere near DWP figures. Ours show an increase of 25% in expenditure overall. I also think I was actually under estimating as well.

    DWP queried the figures so we looked at the February caseload and sent higher ones back.
