R1216a: Invitation to Tender for London Councils & LCCI Business 1000 research


London Councils represents London's 32 borough councils and the City of London. It is a cross party organisation that works on behalf of all of its member authorities regardless of political persuasion. London Councils makes the case to government, the Mayor and others to get the best deal for Londoners and to ensure that our member authorities have the resources, freedoms and powers to do the best possible job for their residents and local businesses.

London Councils, in partnership with the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry [LCCI] is seeking to re-commission its Business 1000 survey of business leaders across London to gauge their views on the most significant issues impacting their businesses.

The LCCI covers a broad range of businesses large and small across London; it is keen to continue to develop its relationship with the boroughs; and has a valued range of contacts in the media to promote the outputs from the research which makes it an ideal commissioning partner for this research.

This research should continue to inform London Councils' positions on devolution (in particular skills); create common positions with the LCCI to support the Executive Portfolio for Brexit and Business; and demonstrate London Councils' and the LCCI's knowledge, understanding and support of London's businesses for a varied audience including senior civil servants and business leaders.


The Business 1000 survey, which was repeated annually every summer from 2017-19, and is being commissioned for a further three years, aims to provide a regular snapshot of the concerns of businesses in London. This work will inform LCCI's and London Councils' approaches to supporting businesses, providing information to develop policy making at the local, regional and national level.

The findings from the last 3 years are available on the London Councils website.

Bidders should apply by completing the Tender Submission Document provided.

**Please note the £90K minimum Contract Value is for 3 surveys**
