What grade makes overpayment recoveribility decisions?

The request was partially successful.

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,
I would like to know what grade of civil servant makes overpayment recoveribility decisions? I have been told these decisions are made at the job centre plus by decision makers but was refused information as to what grade the officer was.

Yours faithfully,

Dear DWP Operations FOI Team,

Thank you for your reply.

I have read all the guidance and I understand decision makers make the recoveribility decision in accordance with fraud, misrepresentation etc

I would like to know what grade of civil servant/ officer the Decision makers are. I.e administrator officer or executive officer?? Is it a processing decision maker or a specialist decision

Could I also add a new question as to diminishing capital?

In DWP is the diminishing capital calculation compeleted prior to or after the recoveribility decision being made and again at which grade is the calculation done? AO processor /EOII specialist decision makers

Yours sincerely,

Martin Harkin
