Programme Management Group

The Enterprise M3 Programme Management Group ( PMG) plays a key role in the ongoing management of Enterprise M3’s funding programmes. The group does not have decision-making powers, rather it is an advisory group to the Board.

The PMG comprises the following representatives:

3 x Private Sector Enterprise M3 Board members (1 to chair)

1 x European Management Group representative

2 x Local Authority Members

2 x Local Authority Senior Officers

1 x Homes and Communities Agency representative

1 x Accountable Body (Hampshire County Council) representative

1 x LEP Director

plus 2 x Local Authority Transport Lead Members and 1 x Private Sector Chairman of Enterprise M3 Transport Action Group for transport related items only.

The main focus of the PMG is around the Local Growth Fund and the Growing Enterprise Fund, although it will have oversight of all funding programmes held and influenced by Enterprise M3.  Responsibilities of the PMG include: reviewing and making recommendations to the Board on the relative priority of proposals for funding; consideration of due diligence and Action Group advice on proposals, and recommending to the Board whether proposals should proceed to contracting; overseeing the development of an appropriate pipeline of proposals to be funded in future, and making recommendations to the Board around this; and, making recommendations to the Board around the alignment of the funding programmes administered by the LEP.
