The Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) has published a new ‘Supplier Guide’ to help businesses prepare to compete for up to 50,000 opportunities helping deliver the venues and infrastructure for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Described as “straightforward” the guide sets out how the Authority will buy and manage up to 2,000 direct contracts with businesses who are then expected to manage up to 50,000 agreements across their own supply chains.
The ODA promises to also launch a service to help mall and medium sized companies identify business opportunities.
Launching the guide the ODA’s Head of Procurement Morag Stuart said the organisation wanted “to work in partnership with the best in business to deliver the venues and infrastructure needed for the London 2012 Olympic Games and Paralympic Games, whilst contributing to a sustainable legacy.”
“To achieve world-class business performance our procurement will be open, transparent and fair. This guide aims to help businesses of all sizes, from all over the UK, support the Games and potentially benefit from their success.”
