1. Foreword 
This report is designed to capture learning and knowledge arising from theexperience of the East of England Development Agency (EEDA) in commissioning,managing and delivering economic development programmes and projects.
In light of the forthcoming closure of the Regional Development Agencies (RDAs), it isappropriate to summarise and catalogue the economic development lessons that EEDAand our partners have learnt during the Agency’s 11 years’ lifespan.The document is designed as a toolkit to avoid common pitfalls and signposts towards bestpractice guidance. We hope that this information might be useful for other local andregional partners taking forward similar projects in the future. This may include voluntaryand community groups, the educational sector, the private sector, local authorities andlocal enterprise partnerships amongst others. The report draws extensively on existing material, such as the assessments that tookplace as part of the Independent Supplementary Review and EEDA’s portfolio ofevaluation reports which included extensive interviews with, or surveys of partners,delivery agents and beneficiaries. It also draws on discussions and interviews with anumber of EEDA staff and partners. From these sources, this document highlights goodpractice and also common pitfalls or issues.
