EU COMMON STRATEGIC FRAMEWORK FUNDS IN ENGLAND 2014-2020

INITIAL PROPOSALS FROM HMG

21 NOVEMBER 2012


WHAT ARE THE OBJECTIVES FOR TODAY?

  • Present the Government’s latest thinking for an EU Common Strategic Framework (CSF) Funds delivery model and get feedback from you to inform its further development

  • To listen to your views

  • Understand from you your plans and aspirations for how to use the CSF Funds


WHAT’S HAPPENED SO FAR……

  • Informal consultation (April 2012)

  • Bespoke events for specific audiences eg. universities, local authorities, voluntary sector, fund specific management committees, etc (Spring-Autumn 2012)

  • Development of an initial delivery model and Ministerial discussion (November 2012)

  • Road testing the approach (today!)

  • Refining the model for formal consultation 2013


WHAT YOU HAVE TOLD US SO FAR

  • Preference for place based programmes with flexible geographies

  • Any approach must be responsive to local need and national priorities

  • Simplification of fund management

  • Integrated programming, in particular in relation to the Structural Funds (ERDF and ESF)

  • Better co-ordination of match-funding & co-financing across the public sector

GROWTH PROGRAMME

  • An “EU Growth Programme” to be financed by ERDF and ESF with a contribution from EAFRD

  • A single “EU Growth Programme Board” incorporating a joint Programme Managing Committee for ESF and ERDF

  • LEPs to be the fundamental building blocks receiving a 7 year notional allocation subject to periodic performance reviews

  • LEPs to identify their preferred EU investment strategy as part of their wider strategy for agreement by the Growth Board. LEPs to select projects and oversee delivery against their strategy

  • Government departmental teams to work as “CSF Area Growth Teams” to support LEPs in the development and delivery of projects and oversee management of the funds

  • National co-financing initiatives to take account of local needs.

  • ‘ITIs’ may be an option in a limited number of places - where this arrangement will deliver better value, higher impact results.


GROWTH PROGRAMME THEMES

SME competitiveness

Skills

Low carbon economy


GROWTH PROGRAMME: A SIMPLIFIED SYSTEM
