Solent LEP has secured significant public funding and, as a result, operates within the context of public funding frameworks. In recognition of this, the LEP has established robust, transparent and accountable governance arrangements. These Governance arrangements are set out in the Solent LEP Assurance Framework, the purpose of which should be viewed in the context of the Accountability Systems Statements for both Local Government and the Local Growth Fund, which provide assurance to the Public Accounts Committee for how Local Growth Funds and wider funding routed through Local Government are allocated.
In accordance with Part C: Transparent Decision Making of the Solent LEP Assurance Framework, the LEP will publish on a quarterly basis information relating to the allocation of public funding.
