Details

Following a report by the Public Affairs Committee in July 2016 the government asked Mary Ney to conduct a review into Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) governance and transparency.

The aim of the review was to provide sufficient assurance to the Accounting Officer and ministers that LEPs fully implement existing requirements for appropriate governance and transparency.

In January 2018 Local Enterprise Partnership governance and transparency: best practice guidance was published to support LEPs in meeting the recommendations made by the review.

In July 2018 ‘Strengthened Local Enterprise Partnerships’ set out government’s expectations of Local Enterprise Partnerships’ roles and responsibilities.
