The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) is said to have shaved £50m from the cost of nine of its largest IT programmes since this March.

According to parliamentary answers given to questions tabled by the Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats, Kablenet reports that the nine projects now have total estimated costs of £1.56bn, down 3.2%.

This is £50m less than the previous £1.61bn projected costs of the projects. However, this is still 17.9% above their original projected costs of £1.33bn.
