The levels of support and supervision for staff employed by private sector contractors who operate immigration removal centres on behalf of the Border and Immigration Agency (BIA) are a matter for the companies concerned.

BIA officials in centres monitor staffing levels to ensure that the minimum requirements for each centre are met. Performance measurement mechanisms are in place to impose performance points where staffing levels are not met and result in financial deductions from the contractor's operating fees.
