Description: Personal Independence Payment (PIP) will be introduced from April 2013 to replace Disability Living Allowance (DLA) for people aged 16-64. It will be targeted to those people who face the greatest challenge to remaining independent and participating in society. It will provide a more objective assessment of needs and be more responsive to changes in those needs. PIP will be simpler to claim and to administer. The Personal Independence Payment Implementation Programme will: • Deliver a controlled start for New Claims in April 2013, followed by a planned national roll out in June 2013. Reassessment of existing DLA claimants will commence in October 2013 with reassessments of indefinite DLA awards not commencing until Oct 2015 • Introduce new assessment criteria with assessment being provided by Health Professionals through Independent Assessment Providers. • Provide new business processes and supporting IT for staff and the Independent Assessment Providers.• Deliver more targeted support for those most in need.
DCA (RAG): Amber/Red
DCA text: The MPA review team recognised the huge progress made by the Programme Team to agree a delivery approach that continues to align with the policy and reduces some of the implementation risk. The review team were concerned about the complexity of the Programme and gave a delivery confidence rating of Amber. An Action Plan was developed by the Programme to address the recommendations and all actions are complete.
Start date: 2011-10-31
End date: 2016-03-31

Baseline: £139.43m
Forecast: £126.72m
Variance: -9.12%
Variance text: The 12/13 budget was set early in 2012 and was based on an outline IT commercial pricing estimates at an early stage of PIP design. Subsequently estimates were updated as commercial negotiations progressed and cost estimates were reviewed. This allowed the forecast to be reduced whilst maintaining delivery plans.
Whole Life Cost: £2,771.38m
WLCost text: Budgeted whole life costs are to 2021/22 and were set in early 2012. The emerging view is that costs may reduce over the whole life.
