Summary of a report which brings together and summarises the key evidence available from the 2013 and 2014 waves of the Work Programme evaluation relating to the commissioning model, finance and programme delivery, together with evidence from provider surveys from 2012, 2013 and 2014.

The report explores the impact of the commissioning model on the provider market, the operation of financial model and programme delivery. The report draws on qualitative interviews, conducted in 2013 and 2014, with Work Programme prime providers, selected subcontractors and providers outside supply chains, DWP and Jobcentre Plus staff, together with national surveys of providers and an analysis of Work Programme provider market data. DWP will use the results from this report in the continuous improvement of the Work Programme and the design of any future contracts.
