To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord McNally on 26 October 2010 (WA 274-75), how many of the 64 providers in breach of the fixed fee margin key performance indicator for their asylum work in 2009-10 were awarded asylum contracts in the 2010 civil bid round, and how many matter starts they were awarded in total; and how many of the 54 providers in breach of the fixed fee margin key performance indicator for their immigration work in the year 2009-10 were awarded immigration contracts in the 2010 civil bid round, and how many matter starts they were awarded in total.

Further to the Written Answer by Lord McNally on 26 October 2010 (WA 274-75), 39 of the 64 providers in breach of the fixed fee margin key performance indicator (KPI) for their asylum work in 2009-10 were awarded asylum contracts in the 2010 civil bid round and were awarded 7,863 asylum matter starts in total. In terms of immigration cases, owing to a corruption of the data set a duplicate record has been produced which now indicates 53 immigration providers were in breach, and not 54 as previously stated. Of those 53 providers in breach of the fixed fee margin KPI for their immigration work in 2009-10, 33 were awarded immigration contracts in the 2010 civil bid round and were awarded 7,678 immigration matter starts in total.

Under the previous unified contract, key performance indicators were performance measures only and were not criteria for the award of contracts in the 2010 bid round. However, they are now requirements of the 2010 standard civil contract.
