Hi lr,

I am sorry but housing benefit is not one of the benefits that we deal with.

I must admit that the "performance measurment team" is a new one on me.

I have heard of the "Benefits Integrity Team".

It could be something as simple as a normal review, I really don't know.

Have you tried searching on the internet?

Sorry that I can't offer much help here.

cheers

This is a new initiative from the DWP to try and reduce the over-payment of benefits due to error.

They are ramdomly selecting claims for audit.

There are more details in the following document, see item 1.6 specifically.
