Independent Economic Review

Invitation to bid

The LEP is looking for an independent partner to review the Sheffield City Region’s economy.

The LEP is looking for an organisation with extensive expertise to complete an ‘Independent Economic Review’.

The partner organisation will be tasked with giving the LEP independent and reliable evidence. This evidence will enable the LEP to create a ‘Strategic Growth Plan’ to maximise the economic potential of the area.

The Review will form the development of the LEP’s ‘Strategic Growth Plan’. This will be submitted to Government for its allocation of funding which will go into a single local pot.

The Independent Economic Review is expected to start in late June with the findings to be reported by July 2013.

The LEP is asking for applications by no later than Tuesday 11 June. Organisations interested in applying can find out more and apply at
