The Department for Transport (DfT) has update its guidance on teh Incentive Fund and Self Assessment Questionnaire for the Highways Maintenance Capital Funding for 2020/21.
For 2020/21, each local highway authority in England (excluding London) is invited to complete a self-assessment questionnaire, in order to establish the share of the Incentive fund they will be eligible for in 2020/21. This includes those authorities who are currently deemed Band 3 from the 2019/20 round.
Eligible local highway authorities have until 11:59pm on Friday 28 February 2020 to submit a completed questionnaire. Any authorities that do not submit a questionnaire by this deadline will not receive any of their Incentive Fund allocation in 2020/21 (i.e. 0%). Authorities that fall into Band 1 will receive 0% of their allocation in 2020/21.
This year there will also be some non scorable questions to help shape the future of the self assessment questionaire and to help the industry plan for the future.
All the guidance and information on the questions are here:
