The 2022-2023 Peer Challenge Cycle will take place between January and May 2023.
In this, our fifth year of operation, each authority is offered external validation or quality control of is self-assessment in advance of the peer challenge event.
This process is managed by Alison Smailes of Hampshire (contact details below) on behalf of SESLIP. The prospectus setting out available assistance is here.
Our Lead Members supported by Alison Michalska of LGA (see below for contacts), will continue to provide scrutiny and challenge as each authority’s self assessments are drafted and signed off.
We offer access to our growing library of the region’s self-assessments and the Peer Challenge data packs in the password-protected Peer Challenge Library. For access please contact Isabelle Gregory (details below).
For further discussion, please contact Richard Tyndall, Programme Manager, details below.
