Our assessments covered the Regional Development Agencies’ performance in tackling the challenges of:

  • prioritising in response to the downturn and budget cuts;
  • learning lessons from evaluation of their previous activity to improve the effectiveness of their future intervention; and
  • bringing about continuous improvement in their processes.

Our assessments were carried out between October 2009 and April 2010. We have issued separate reports on each of the Agencies.
