The Pathways to Work document states that the introduction of the new Intreo service is a multi-annual project. All elements of the Intreo service will be operational in four offices by the end of November 2012 and a further six offices are expected to be live by the end of the year. The plans for 2013 are now being developed and the selection of offices will depend upon a range of factors including availability of suitable accommodation, I.T. and the necessary skilled and trained staff being available in a location to deliver the full range of services. I will announce the names of the next phase of offices when the final selections have been made.
