Audit of Business Support Providers

Date: November 1999 - May 2000
Client: Sussex Enterprise
This project was undertaken to facilitate the development of the Small Business Service; providing necessary information to ensure that it plugged gaps in business support provision within Sussex and avoided duplicating existing provision. The aims of the project were as follows:
  • To identify all business support providers in Sussex.

  • To investigate their operations in terms of type of provision, scale of client base and main markets (categorised by sector, size and location).

  • To assess their awareness of other provision.

  • To gather their views on gaps in provision.

    A database of relevant companies was built up through internet searches and a trawl of business directories and a self-completion postal survey was undertaken using the database as a sample frame.
