Executive summary

This document sets out the request to increase the budget of the Specialist Assistance Team (SAT), an advisory consultant resource set up to advise the Mayor’s Regeneration Fund delivery partners, by £15,000 from the Mayor’s Regeneration Fund (MRF) programme support budget.

The MRF Specialist Assistance Team budget of £14,660 which was carried forward from 2012/13 has been fully committed. A new Specialist Assistance Team will be procured in 2014/15, for a 3 year period, but it is not likely to be in place before Quarter 2. This additional resource is required to support MRF projects in the interim.
