ACE Publishes Relationship Frameworks for 2023-26

Arts Council England has published their Relationship Frameworks, for all those planning to apply to their 2023-26 Investment Programme.

Arts Council England has published their Relationship Frameworks, for all those planning to apply to their 2023-26 Investment Programme. The Framework includes two documents which explain how ACE works together if you become either a National Portfolio Organisation or Investment Principles Support Organisation.

The Relationship Frameworks set out how ACE will work with National Portfolio Organisations (NPOs) and Investment Principles Support Organisations (IPSOs) for 2023-26. There is one framework for each programme.
The frameworks explain: 

  • what happens if ACE offers you funding
  • who your point of contact at the Arts Council will be
  • the role and responsibilities of your board
  • how you’ll report on, and how ACE will monitor, your organisation and activity
  • when, and how, ACE might make any interventions in the event that you’re not delivering on your funding agreement

Alongside this, they’ve also published their draft Standard Terms and Conditions. ACE are sharing these with you now so you know what to expect if you’re offered funding, but they may make changes before issuing final funding agreements.

If you’re not currently an NPO, you must have an introductory conversation with one of the ACE team in order for your application to be eligible.  Conversations are taking place until 8 April 2022. They recommend if you haven’t already booked your introductory conversation, to schedule it for March or April, so you have enough time to absorb the guidance addendum when it is published later this month.

You can book your conversation now through ACE’s Customer Services team and you need to do so by 4pm on 24 March.
