After an extensive period of working with Govtech to test and enhance its Universal Credit Digital Service (“UCDS”) Kirklees MBC has deployed the UCDS to great effect. UCDS supports Kirklees’ policy of reviewing entitlement to Council Tax Reduction only three times a year, unless there are any significant changes meanwhile.

Complementing its comprehensive filtering, matching and pre-assessment of LCTR Change Notifications received daily from the DWP, the most advanced configuration of UCDS has resulted in a 62% reduction in work items created in the back office system. Download the case study here
