Nine computer projects in Work & Pensions behind schedule

A parliamentary answer has revealed that nine DWP IT projects are behind schedule, some by as much as three years. Collectively, the total delay is fifteen years.

Successive ministers at the department have clearly failed to get a grip on IT developments. With the frequent changes at the top (including a short tenure by Neath's Peter Hain), this is hardly surprising. Nor has this government restored the professional computer expertise destroyed by Thatcher & Heseltine.
