How will the City Deal work?

The City Deal programme of 26 projects is underpinned by a robust governance process and arrangements designed to ensure that public money delivers agreed outcomes

Governance

The ultimate decision-making body, the Glasgow City Region Cabinet, is made up of the Leaders of the eight member authorities, with meetings held every eight weeks and details available to the public. View  schedule of Cabinet meetings.

The pdf icon Assurance Framework [7Mb] is the formal document which sets out how the City Deal will be governed and managed. Approved by the Cabinet in March 2015, it consists of three parts: The Glasgow City Region Cabinet; The Business Cases; Programme and Project Governance, including management arrangements, strategies and the Programme Management Office.


A Project Management Office administers and manages the Programme; liaises with the UK and Scottish Governments and other stakeholders; analyses and reports on the impact and delivery of projects and the overall programme.


Funding

Funding provided by the UK and Scottish Governments will be paid over a twenty year period and unlocked in five-year blocks, subject to the City Deal delivering agreed outputs and outcomes, assessed through a Gateway Review mechanism.

The UK and Scottish Governments will each give the city region £500 million in grant funding, and the local authorities will borrow a further £130million.

Further funding of £18.8 million from BIS (Department of Business, Innovation and Skills) and £4.8 million from Department of Work and Pensions will fund the Business Growth and Innovation and the Employability schemes respectively over three years.
