Great South West seeks expertise for independent economic review


The Great South West is inviting proposals for a strategic Independent Economic Review (IER) of our region.

The review will build on our previous prospectus ‘Securing Our Future,’ providing a refreshed narrative and framework for positioning the Great South West as a leading location in the UK’s future security, centred around defence, energy, climate, and food.

We’re looking for suitably qualified consultants who understand our vision and can deliver high-impact strategies. The IER will focus on key sectors such as marine industries, environmental science, digital innovation, and more, highlighting our regional assets and opportunities. The IER will also provide vital market data, analyse supply chain interdependencies, and showcase the region’s unique opportunities and strategic assets.

Proposals should be sent to by 4pm Wednesday 31st January. Please state ‘Great South West Independent Economic Review RFQ Submission’ in your email.
