At the end of October 2015, the DWP's director-general of finance was bullish about hitting this higher target when he appeared before a parliamentary committee, saying: "We are confident that [Maximus] will over-achieve the amounts of work over and above the forecast that was set".  But at the start of November, Maximus's senior management team warned  its shareholders that volume targets were not being met.
