The Department makes payments to private sector companies for the provision of contractually defined services. In the case of immigration detention facilities payment covers a holistic range of services for the operation, management and maintenance of those facilities.

A private sector company is also contracted for a range of services to support the removal of individuals from the UK (including deportation). This includes the staffing short-term holding facilities at ports and reporting centres and the provision of escorting and medical staff to escort individuals to the port of departure or a destination country.
