Digital Accelerator Grant – Advisor support
For those accessing Advisor support in conjunction with the Digital Accelerator Grant, once your PIF has been completed and returned, a call will be arranged to discuss your project in more detail and what advice our team can provide.
Digital Accelerator Grant – Fast-track
For Fast-track applications, once your PIF has been completed and quotes uploaded to the Client Portal, your Digital Advisor will review and appraise your application.
High Impact Grant
For projects between £25,000 – £100,000, more detailed information such as company accounts and a Business Plan will be required. Further information regarding the procurement process will be discussed, and your Advisor will be on hand to guide you through the process from preparing the tender brief, advertising the project, through to reviewing and evaluating tender proposals.
Your project will be assessed by your Digital Advisor, who will score against a variety of metrics including Digital Transformation, Growth and viability of the business, and Economic impact your project will have. Your overall project score will determine what percentage of funding you’ll receive from Digital Enterprise (up to 50% subject to the cap of £10k for the Digital Accelerator Grant and £35k cap for the High Impact Grant respectively).
Once we have all the necessary information and you’ve uploaded the quotes for your project, we will issue a Funding Agreement. The Funding Agreement will need to be signed by yourself and us before you make any purchases in relation to your project. If any purchases or payments are made before the Funding Agreement is signed by both parties, then this will be classed as a retrospective claim and the whole, or relevant part of your grant will be rejected.
