Description

The Programme and Fund Services team at Cornwall Development Company, provides bespoke programme management services to many projects and grant funding programmes delivered in Cornwall.

Working alongside statutory funding bodies, local decision making groups, Cornwall Council, the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership, further and higher education colleges and universities and local project delivery teams, the Programme and Fund Services team provide a complete secretariat and grant funding management service. Our aim is to ensure that your project or programme meets your needs and is compliant with funding requirements from appraisal and due diligence of applicants through to ensuring claims and monitoring processes are fit for purpose.

Our successful track record has included programme management of a range of schemes delivered in the county, including all European investment funds (ERDF, ESF, EAFRD, EMFF) as well as UK funding (e.g. Regional Growth Fund).  Working with external partnerships we have provided programme management of the EAFRD funded LEADER Programme and the EMFF funded Fisheries Local Action Group Programme. We also support our colleagues in Cornwall Development Company in the delivery and management of, Community Led Local Development, Agritech Cornwall, TEVI, Marine i, and Business Investment for Growth.

The team provides a full secretariat service to many of the local decision making bodies which are accountable for the overview and delivery of the project funding programmes.

We also provide rigorous assessments of grant funding applications, providing reports and recommendations to decision makers. Once approved the Programme and Fund Services team provides the on-going contact point with successful projects, issuing grant funding contracts, processing grant claims and working with grant recipients to ensure they meet publicity and contractual conditions.

The team have considerable experience and expertise in providing highly effective programme management services for a range of clients. The services have been adapted across a wide range of different funding programmes and can be made available to managers of new grant funding projects and programmes.
