Olympic Games 2012: Contracts

Volume 487: debated on Thursday 29 January 2009

To ask the Minister for the Olympics whether contractors at the Olympic site with business continuity plans are required to comply with BS25999 on business continuity management. (250567)

The Olympic Delivery Authority applies a ‘balanced scorecard’ approach to evaluating bids. ‘Cost’, ‘delivering on time’ and ‘quality’ are paramount scorecard factors. While compliance with the BS25999 is not a specific requirement, contractors’ ability to comply with this standard for business continuity management is a consideration when reviewing contractor tenders.
