Dear J Newman, 
 
Thank you for your Freedom of Information request that was received by the Department for 
Work and Pensions (DWP) Adelphi on 18 February 2012 and forwarded on 21 February for 
response by myself, the DWP Medical Services Contracts Correspondence Team (MSCCT) 
Freedom of Information Officer.  
 
In your email you asked  
 
Dear Department for Work and Pensions, 
      
In response VTR 0192 you have provided data relating to the Atos FFW recommendations that 
were subsequently overturned by DWP between Oct 08 and Feb 11. It shows an alarming 
increase in the percentage overturned to WRAG in the latter part of 2010. 
      

1.  What interpretation did DWP place on this huge increase andwhat action did it take to 
address both within DWP & within Atos?This would have been recorded in meeting 
minutes, emails etc. 

2.  Is more recent data available to see if this trend continued? If not, when will it be? 
3.  Does DWP routinely monitor the additional FFW decision reversals made by the 

Tribunals service? 
4.  If so, what is the most up to date information available? 
 
The MSCCT FoI Officer is currently unable to offer a full response to all your questions within 
the target of 20 working days at present, and apologises for the delay in responding. The 20 
working days expires today, and the reason a response has not yet been provided is that the 
issue is still being investigated and enquiries are taking longer than anticipated. A 
comprehensive reply will be sent to you as soon as possible and it is anticipated at this stage 
that a response will be provided to you by March 31.  
 
If you have any queries about this response, please contact me quoting the reference number 
above.   
 
Yours sincerely,  
 
 
DWP Central FoI Team
