Olympics: £5bn of work handed out by ODA

The Olympic Delivery Authority has handed out contracts worth £5 billion on the 2012 Games, it revealed today.

More than 1,000 UK businesses have now won contracts with the body responsible for delivering the infrastructure for the 2012 Olympics in London.

And with many of these deals leading to further sub-contracts, there is still lots of work available on the showpiece event.

ODA chairman John Armitt said: “Businesses of all sizes and from every sector are working together to deliver the largest project this country has seen for generations, and are reaping the benefits of millions of pounds worth of work.

“There are still golden opportunities up for grabs through the UK-wide supply chains, so companies should sign up to CompeteFor to be part of a unique opportunity to showcase UK plc to the world.”

Of the 1,036 suppliers that have won £5 billion worth of work with the ODA, 98 per cent are UK based, 68 per cent are small or medium sized, 46 per cent are based outside London and one in 10 are based in one of the five host boroughs.
