Details

This is the Cabinet Office evaluation of the Better Business Compliance Partnership programme, which started in October 2014. The programme was designed to make joint working between national and local agencies more systematic, to strengthen the response to hidden and illicit economic activity and improve how agencies support businesses to comply with regulatory and other statutory regimes.

It comprised 5 local authority-led partnerships in Cheshire West and Chester, Cornwall, Ealing, Hertfordshire and Manchester and Salford. These partnerships included local and national agencies that co-designed a range of innovative ways to make joint working between local and national agencies more systematic.

The partnerships developed new ways to share intelligence and compliance data and also changed how they arranged and targeted enforcement and compliance activities, often using joint visits. A range of changes were implemented by the partnerships, some of which have potential to be transformative.
