Regeneris Appointed to Appraisal Panels

When the public sector takes investment decisions, robust economic appraisals are essential. It is through the economic appraisal that all alternative investment options and delivery risks are considered, and likely returns on investment are calculated. The process requires a critical eye and the ability to challenge applicants in a constructive way. When executed well, the economic appraisal leads to stronger projects.

Much of the economic appraisal work we do at Regeneris is let through panel appointments. We are therefore delighted to have not only renewed existing panel memberships, we have also recently secured several new economic appraisal panel appointments:

  • HCA Economic Appraisal Panel. This is the gold star appraisal panel and we have been retained on it for the last 10 years. Our position on the panel has just been extended for a further three years.
  • North East Combined Authority Appraisal Panel. This panel will be used to appraise all major capital and skills project and we are one of a small number of appraisal providers.
  • Thames Valley LEPs Transport Appraisal Panels. Our new transport economist Jon Bunney has secured our role in appraising all major transport projects coming forward for LEP funding in the two separate LEP areas of Berkshire and Buckinghamshire.
  • Lancashire Growth Deal Appraisal Panel. We have delivered numerous appraisals for our client in the last two years and our appointment has just been extended by an additional 12 months.
  • D2N2 LEP Appraisal Panel. We provide value for money assessments across Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire and our contract has recently been extended by the LEP to cover all LGF3 projects.

Regeneris also works for applicants in building up business cases for investment. Our skills as economic appraisers leave us perfectly placed to pre-empt investor questions and to assemble persuasive business cases. Our work on previously stalled housing schemes in Northamptonshire is a good example.
