Applicants at this stage will be required to develop a full business case, engage fully with relevant communities, undertake risk assessments and plan the financial implications of their proposal. There is no template provided for the business case, nor have word limits been set. However, when compiling the business case, section headings should be used as described in the guidance notes below and applicants should try to be as succinct as possible.
Your final submission will be assessed by the Business Case Review Panel. This is an in-depth review of the whole business case, and there may be an opportunity to present your business case in person and answer any questions from the Panel.
Following the review, CESU will aim to provide feedback or recommendations within 30 days of submission.
