Olympic Games 2012: Contracts

Volume 491: debated on Thursday 30 April 2009

To ask the Minister for the Olympics how many (a) applications for contracts have been received and (b) contracts have been awarded to Scottish-based firms by the Olympic Delivery Authority. (270481)

The Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) does not keep a record of the number of applications it receives in relation to ODA procurement opportunities.

To date there are 13 businesses registered in Scotland that have won work directly supplying the ODA. These figures do not include those contracts awarded to sub- contractors based in Scotland. The ODA is currently undertaking research into businesses winning sub-contracts in its supply chains, with initial results due in the coming weeks.
