DWP Behavioural Science activity

We're waiting for Ian Wolf to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

You sent me an organogram for Behavioural Science (FoI 2219 reply of 20th June 2017), do these members ever meet as group/team? If they do undertake team like meetings please tell me all the meeting dates for past six months and email me copies of the records, notes and minutes of the meetings.

In FoI 2219 you suggest Behavioural Science has no "information such as a current business plan". Even so, can you please provide brief details of the current work and projects Behavioural Science have been involved in during the last 12 months and information about any specific areas of work they hold particular responsibility. For instance is Behavioural Science involved in the development of the Health and Work Conversation and the Claimant Commitment?

It stands to reason that as Behavioural Science has 13 staff members that it has management information to track the progress of it's activities, please email this management information covering the last 6 months.

Yours faithfully,
Ian

This sounds like a cope out. Is it really credible that everything it does relates to the formulation of Government policy.
