Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

Please provide me with any management information on how long it is taking to conduct a mandatory reconsideration in universal credit.

Ideally, I would like this information broken down by month since April 2018 - June 2019 If any detail is held showing how long it takes to conduct a mandatory reconsideration in a UC case dependent on type of request (eg WCA challenge, sanction, challenge to amount of earnings etc) that would be appreciated.

Please also disclose any performance indicators which are used for how long a mandatory reconsideration should take in a UC case and details of performance against those indicators.

Yours faithfully,

Jacob Davies
