DWP regularly assess Data and Analytics capability and capacity based on assessment of DWP requirements. Recently, DWP have assessed this requirement as part of the Spending Review settlement process alongside other priorities. This has included looking at the data and analytics outcomes that DWP need to deliver, and whether the technical infrastructure, capability and capacity are appropriately aligned.
