The London 2012 Olympic Games and Paralympic Games are already providing business opportunities for companies in the region.

Liverpool Chamber has created a specific category, Olympic 2012,  in its Liverpooltenders.com service to cater for tenders that are already being listed on the site. Maresa Molloy, Head of the Chamber’s Policy and Information Team said: “The speed and frequency of tendering opportunities is moving fast and furious. Current figures suggest that the 2012 Games will cost in the region of £3.3bn+.

“LiverpoolTenders.com is already tracking the tenders coming from the Olympics. Recently posted tenders have been identified for the transport, landscaping and sports industries. We have recently added a category that will alert registered companies to any Olympics 2012 opportunity.”

The opportunities identified that are specifically relevant to the NW are for supplying food and drink, green technologies, this is aims to be the most sustainable games, sport part of the existing supply-chain in NW, digital and creative as there will be a massive media requirement and visitor economy such as merchandising opportunities.

London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Olympic Delivery Authority will adhere to stringent public procurement regulations including H&S, environmental and equal opportunity regulations.

Maresa continued: “All contracts will be advertised on the London 2012 website and will be open to a global market place. This will focus on 1st and 2nd tier suppliers. At the tier 3 level there will be a stronger relationship-led component to main contractors use of their existing or newly developed supply-chains.”
