The Mayor oversees a total budget of £17 billion. Two London Assembly Budget Committees consider if this money is put to good use: the main Budget and Performance Committee, which is supported by a specialist Budget Monitoring Sub-Committee.
These two Committees scrutinise budget and performance in a wide variety of areas across GLA and its functional bodies including:
- Transport for London
- The Metropolitan Police
- The London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority
- The London Legacy Development Corporation
- The Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation
The Committees also look at topical issues such as the cost of transforming the Olympic Stadium, the new Routemaster bus, and funding apprenticeships.
