DWP examines its flawed peer review process, finding deep flaws.

What: DWP carries out a review of its peer review process following a series of freedom of information requests. This leads to peer reviews being renamed internal process reviews. The existence of the review does not emerge for another two years (see 20 April 2017).

Why significant: The review shows that, not only were the benefit assessment policies and processes deeply flawed, but so was the system designed to investigate those flaws and recommend improvements.
