Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

Can you please provide full and accurate details of the total cost to the State (government) for the running of the DWP sub-department the Child Maintenance Service?

If possible, could you please provide a full breakdown of these costs including, but not limited to:
- Staffing costs (including pay and training)

- IT and technical equipment costs (including system upgrades and maintenance)
- All other costs broken down into relevant categories

In addition to the CMS, can you also provide equivalent figures and breakdown for the Child Maintenance Options sub-department that also falls under DWP's jurisdiction.

Yours faithfully,

A. L. Lampard

May be worth asking to include the cost of funding the tribunals service as part of the cost - many Tribunal buildings are in the ownership or control of the DWP - just read the fire and health & safety notices in a Tribunal building - printed and displayed by DWP.

Dear [email address] on behalf of Operations FOI Team,

Thank you very much for providing these figures. I am presuming a breakdown of cost is not available, however, if possible, could you confirm if this includes the FIU department and court/tribunal proceeding costs please?

Also, are you able to provide the figures for running Child Maintenance Options? Which is detailed as an additional but entirely separate division of DWP to the Child Maintenance Service.

Yours sincerely,

Anna Lampard

Department for Work and Pensions
