Common Assessment Framework
The following are recent press stories. What is unclear is to what extent they are anecdotal stories about things that are not more common or whether in fact these cases are now more common. I am getting concerns from practitioners that the Common Assessment Framework is making things harder. Although we no longer have adoption targets, that does not mean that the system has stopped making decisions that are false positives (acting when it shouldn't) or false negatives (failing to act when it should). The people who have the statistics on these issues (the government) have been preventing me from getting the access I used to have.
