Government contractors look to India for DWP IT developer roles

Anh Nguyen | March 27, 2012
IBM and Accenture, major IT contractors to the government, have proposed to create 500 new developer roles in the UK and India for work on the Department for Work and Pensions' Universal Credit system.

The system will restructure the UK's benefit system by unifying the current system of means-tested out of work benefits, tax credits and support for housing, to create a single, income-replacement benefit for working age adults.

The DWP hopes that it will also enable it to process and implement claims automatically and more efficiently than at present.

The Universal Credit is said to be on track for a four-year rollout - to get everyone on the system - from October 2013.
