Operating Policies and Procedures Memorandum No. 84-9: Processing Hearing Transcriptions [open pdf - 157KB]
"The Executive Office for Immigration Review, at the time of its creation, inherited a serious backlog of Immigration Judge hearings requiring transcription. We have attempted to deal with this problem by entering into contracts with a number of independent vendors for the transcription of hearings. We are presently in the process of finalizing additional multiple contracts for transcription services which hopefully will allow us to deal more effectively with the backlog of cases which need transcribing."
