Olympic Games 2012: KPMG

Volume 482: debated on Tuesday 11 November 2008

To ask the Minister for the Olympics if she will publish the terms of reference given to KPMG in relation to its report on Olympic venues. (233748)

KPMG was instructed by the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) with input from the Government Olympic Executive and the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games to assist in the evaluation of the options analysis for:

venue options for Basketball which would include the final round of the Handball Competition;

review of the value engineering study conducted by the ODA in late 2007;

the use of the Royal Artillery Barracks at Woolwich as the venue for both the Olympic and Paralympic Games Shooting competitions;

the use of Greenwich for the Equestrian and Modern Pentathlon events during the Games;

the use of Eton Manor as the possible venue for Wheelchair Tennis, Paralympic Archery and training pools;

considerations stress value for money.

The KPMG report is yet to be finalised and therefore plans for any part of its publication, including the specific terms of reference, are still to be determined.
