London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games

The London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games (LOCOG) is a company established to deliver the goods and services necessary to run the Games. LOCOG is funded predominantly by private funding streams (ticket revenue, merchandise, sponsorship and TV rights). The London 2012 brand is closely protected to ensure that these funds can be raised.

Major procurement for LOCOG contracts starts in 2009.

As well as staging the 2012 Games, LOCOG will also be responsible for staging a series of test events in the year before the Games; recruiting and training volunteers; and overseeing the four year Cultural Olympiad leading up to the Games.

Olympic Delivery Authority

The Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA), a public body, is responsible for delivering the infrastructure and venues needed for the Games. The ODA is funded largely by the lottery and Government. It is therefore accountable to Government, the GLA and other stakeholders.
