Can anyone tell me what the Bexby is
I received an interim payment from the dwp in Dec after a telephone call in November telling me that they owed me a Disability Premium backdated to 2014 and that it would be a substantial payment covering all the years if they failed to pay me the premium since 2014 then they would ow me around £20,000 
So I called today to find out why I had heard nothing from then since Nov 2020 they d=said that it was being reviewed under "The Bexby Report" so of course I asked what is the Bexby report and the call handler for the ESA  and they did nit know nor did JCP or UC sections so can someone please enlighten me as to where I can fid a copy of the bexby report TY and stay safe

    Hi @kenngordon and welcome to our community.

    I'm struggling to find any reference to the Bexby Report either unfortunately.  The Independent article you link to cites an official error and section 27 of the Social Security Act 1998 therefore it could be in relation to this.  I'll definitely do some more research though and get back to you with any firm answers.

    Edited to add: I've moved your post to our ESA category and tweaked the title to see if anyone else can help.

    Hi the BExBI team (Benefit Expenditure Business Information) is part of the DWP accountancy team. They have access to a number of systems that many staff don't and often respond to inquiries on benefit spending. One of these is the Central Payment System.

    If they do not have the information at hand then they are likely waiting for a report from this team on what payments were made. As such it is not something you can 'look up'.

    Hi @mikehughescq

    Over the years I have done a lot research in different areas trying identify how we could better align what we were doing with the national and regional priorities. I've mainly seen it as a footnote regarding the source for written responses to MPs. It doesn't appear often from what I've seen.

    I was on the board for 15 years, most of them as Chair for a non profit organisation. Understanding local and national priorities was a good way to see how we could align what we are doing, as well as identifying potential areas of funding.
