Answered By: 
The Mayor

The LEP has not engaged external consultants to undertake any core functions, instead drawing on expertise from within the GLA and London Councils. External professional services have been used in the development and delivery of LEP funded projects when required, including total expenditure to date of £1.734 million. This is to support and provide scoping, feasibility, due diligence of funding applications and delivery where necessary.
