For assessors: Commercially sensitive projects
Occasionally our partners, such as EESW, Nuffield and the RAF will send through projects with a commercially sensitive projects form.
We have accredited these projects and have given special permission for these projects to be internally assessed, due to the sensitive nature of the content.
In cases like these, all you need to do is mark the project as indicated on the form, and give a general bit of praise.
We do not expect profile forms to be included.
Please see the form attached
