Hi all - I am dedicating this topic to provide articles about VSC and hopefully to find out why VSC is way behind CSC in adjudicating I-751.

Please, do not re-move this topic to somewhere else

Again purpose is to find out why VSC is very slow

The first news is the below link;

According to the link, VSC currently has 50 adjudicators.

Hi all - I am dedicating this topic to provide articles about VSC and hopefully to find out why VSC is way behind CSC in adjudicating I-751.

We KNOW why the VSC is so far behind: first, the TSC and NSC are no longer processing 751s, and second, the VSC location moved, and the, uprooting, move and settling in at the new location caused these delays. Thirdly, they're focused on one type of case at the time, little sense as that makes in my eyes. They are now at the new location and are churning out 751s approvals at a decent rate.

All info courtesy of Gary_and_Alla, who posted about this, but I can't find the thread anymore.

Government agencies have always excuses for their embarrassing inefficiencies...if all these factors weren't involved,they'd still suck big time..probably they'd say they don't have enough pen and stamps. USCIS simply flat-out sucks,period.

Agree, and also 50 employees VSC has really big territories in terms of receipts of applications so that would be the second reason. I do not think that moving excuse is official.

On April 27, 2011, the Citizenship and Immigration Services Ombudsman’s Office (Ombudsman’s Office) hosted a public teleconference regarding U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) processing times and interviewed Mr. Joseph Moore, Chief of the USCIS Office of Performance and Quality (OPQ), for this conversation.

Why Is There A Difference In Processing Time for the Same Application at Different Field Offices or Service Centers?

Mr. Moore suggested that many factors may contribute to a difference in processing times between field offices or service centers, including staffing issues like the loss of employees through retirement or transfers. Sub-optimal staff levels impact the capacity to process cases, and oftentimes cause processing times to increase. USCIS tries to offset these conditions by employing overtime or moving work, when possible.

well if you take a look at the National Processing Volumes and Trends, you would find out why.

Vermont service center receives twice as many applications as does California, and they process fewer applications

per month. So this adds more and more to the wait time per application.

That's why USCIS doesn't make any sense...when they will seriously apply a load-balancing system and start sending petition to the present-time less busy center and invert things when the other center is more "free"? I stated it different times,in this way we wouldn't have 80 days approvals in CSC and 140/150 in Vermont..but instead a more equal and fair average. Dumb government
