Assurance Framework

Dorset LEP’s Local Assurance Framework demonstrates our commitment to transparency and accountability and sets out our approach to appraise, deliver, monitor and evaluate schemes to achieve value for money. It also sets out to prove that funding delegated from national budgets is aligned with national regulations and guidelines.

The Assurance Framework focuses on five areas:

  • DLEP Governance and decision-making
  • Local Authority partnership working across the DLEP
  • Transparency
  • Accountability, overview and scrutiny
  • Ensuring value for money
