Employees of the Department for Work and Pensions do not undertake Employment and Support Allowance or Personal Independence Payment assessments.

In August 2012 following a competitive tendering exercise the contract for undertaking Personal Independence Payment assessments was awarded to Atos Healthcare and Capita Business Services Ltd.

Work Capability Assessments are delivered through the Health and Disability Assessment Service Contract. It is a three year contract from March 2015 delivered by the Centre for Health and Disability Assessments, a subsidiary of MAXIMUS.
