Assurance Framework

In order to support the process of devolution and give confidence to both local stakeholders and stakeholders in Central Government that appropriate arrangements are in place to deliver, Greater Birmingham & Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership has drawn up this Accountability Framework which sets out the LEP’s operating arrangements; describes how we will approve, deliver and manage the programme of projects benefitting from Local Growth Funding.

It should be noted that Greater Birmingham & Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership views this Framework as a live document. It is therefore our intention that this Framework is subject to annual review. Agreement for proposed changes to this Framework will be sought from the LEP Board (or from the Growth Team, under delegated authority from the LEP Board), with further endorsement sought from the Supervisory Board. Agreement will then be sought from the Accountable Body.
