As part of the work force planning process directors must submit work force plans to deliver the services they are responsible for within allocated budgets. Where headcount reductions are necessary it is for directors to formulate proposals as to how they will be achieved.

Strategies for reduction in UK Border Agency include reorganisation and more efficient ways of working, a recruitment freeze and voluntary exit schemes. Where plans are likely to result in surplus staff who may be at risk of redundancy, directors are required to follow the process set out in the Home Office Restructuring, Redeployment and Redundancy Policy.
