Description of the contract

In 2009 and 2010 BIS commissioned a finance survey of mid-cap businesses to explore whether access to finance was affected by the financial crisis. BIS is now commissioning a further survey of mid-sized businesses on access to finance and the customer journey to obtaining finance. This will form part of the evidence base for developing finance schemes under the business bank. While the past mid-cap finance surveys have focused on whether there were issues for access to finance in the current economic climate, this survey will be more focused on the customer journey; the steps mid-sized businesses go through when considering the need to raise external finance, and the process by which they obtain this finance. The results of this research will help inform the work of the business bank by providing a robust evidence base to develop finance schemes.
