We have received a request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 for the following: 

Requesting details as they were at end of October 2010.
    
1. How many caseworkers are there in CRTS 9 at the moment?

  1. How many legacy cases have been allocated to this team by the case resolution directorate?

  2. How many cases has this team resolved so far?

  3. Of the resolved cases, how many were grants of leave to remain?

  4. Is this team above or below their target?

  5. What measures does this team have to ensure that complex cases (such as those that have lots of information on file) are not unfairly left at the bottom of the queue and ignored by caseworkers in favour of easier cases and smaller files?

We released the following information on 15 December 2010

 

  1. The size of teams has changed during the course of the Legacy Programme as the process has evolved. There were 14 caseworkers in CRTS 9 at the end of October 2010. The case resolution directorate (CRD) underwent restructuring and employed additional administrative staff in separate teams, who enable the case workers to focus on decision making and increase case conclusions.

  2. CRTS 9 has a remaining allocation of 279 Home Office files.

  3. CRTS 9 have concluded 3,197 cases up to the end of October 2010.

  4. CRTS 9 have been granted 1,119 cases leave to remain.

  5. The team remains on target to conclude their cohort by CRD’s published deadline of summer 2011.

  6. CRTS 9 deals with the cases of applicants in receipt of asylum support. As such all cases within their cohort are an operational priority. Cases are dealt with in order of operational priority rather than complexity.
