Local Industrial Strategy Development - An invitation to tender

Local Industrial Strategy Development - An invitation to tender

In autumn 2017, the UK Government published an Industrial Strategy White Paper which highlights the importance of place and the need for local industrial strategies to bring together the five foundations of productivity and the four grand challenges for the UK to increase productivity, earnings and wellbeing, locally and nationally. In December 2018, the Government asked Dorset Local Enterprise Partnership to help deliver this strategy by developing a Local Industrial Strategy (LIS) for Dorset.

Working in close collaboration with local businesses, organisations, Bournemouth, Christchurch and Pool Council, Dorset Council and other partners and stakeholders, Dorset’s LIS will be a twenty-year plan to increase productivity, innovation, earnings and well-being across the county, delivering on an ambition to create a local economy that is sustainable, innovative, resilient and inclusive.

Dorset Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) is seeking a single company or consortia to support its executive team and Board across a number of activities. Including overseeing the LIS engagement strategy, working closely with the LEP Board, its LIS Steering Group, the LIS Operational Group and senior members of the LEP team to ensure the Dorset LIS is a truly collaborative strategy, drawing on examples of best practice from elsewhere in the country.
