Since April 2012, the SFO’s caseload has been recalibrated so that it is taking on fewer and more complex cases, as envisaged by the Roskill model.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The SFO’s Intelligence Unit will assess all matters referred to the SFO whether by the public, the police or other agencies or organisations and refer those considered suitable for acceptance to a Case Evaluation Board before submission to the Director for his decision to open a criminal investigation under the Criminal Justice Act 1987.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>SFO investigations are complex, and this can sometimes lead to investigations merging or splitting into different parts. For instance, the Libor investigation is into numerous financial institutions, and there are other large investigations which have been subdivided.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The information requested for earlier years is contained in the following table.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p><strong>2012/13</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2011/12</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2010/11</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2009/10</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2008/09</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2007/08</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Number of investigations opened</p></td><td><p>8</p></td><td><p>10</p></td><td><p>13</p></td><td><p>17</p></td><td><p>20</p></td><td><p>18</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Number of individuals charged</p></td><td><p>18</p></td><td><p>24</p></td><td><p>25</p></td><td><p>57</p></td><td><p>31</p></td><td><p>20</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Number of corporates charged</p></td><td><p>0</p></td><td><p>0</p></td><td><p>1</p></td><td><p>2</p></td><td><p>0</p></td><td><p>1</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Number of convictions secured</p></td><td><p>14</p></td><td><p>39</p></td><td><p>23</p></td><td><p>24</p></td><td><p>33</p></td><td><p>17</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Number of prosecutions completed by defendant (including those convicted)</p></td><td><p>20</p></td><td><p>54</p></td><td><p>28</p></td><td><p>26</p></td><td><p>54</p></td><td><p>25</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Note 1: Two cases have been opened, closed, and then re-opened.

The SFO is currently carrying out a project to ensure that its reporting systems are more robust in the future.</p>
