Maximus Redacted: The New Fit-For-Work Contract

As Atos counts down the days to its termination date, the new work capability assessment contract has been published, albeit with some redactions. It's super dull but I've read it, so you don't have to; here's what caught my eye.

Most of the documents deal with the contracting process itself rather than the WCA per se. Maximus's bit was very readable but the DWP's description of what it expects from its contractor is written in the turgid tones of a Kremlin edict on quotas for tractor manufacture in Smolensk, circa 1975.
