Dear Home Office,

The Home Office's guidance on applications under the Student and Child Student routes states that caseworkers use 'risk profiles' to assess applications and conduct verification checks (see here: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk... at p.73).

Please provide the following information:

(1) Are these risk profiles different from and separate to the visa application Streaming Tool referred to in my previous FOI request (reference 61206, available here: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/v...

(2) If so, please provide (a) copies of any equality impact assessments or data protection impact assessments completed in relation to these risk profiles, and (b) copies of any internal policies, guidance or standard operating procedures which deal with the development, maintenance or use of these profiles.

In the event that you determine some of the information I have requested to be exempt from disclosure, please redact exempt information with black boxes, instead of snipping or excerpting, and please state which category of exemption you believe applies to the information.

If it is not possible to provide the information requested due to the information exceeding the cost of compliance limits identified in s.12 FOIA, please provide advice and assistance as to how I can refine my request, as required under s.16 FOIA.

Yours faithfully,

Jack Maxwell
