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 Commissioner
- The London Legacy Development Corporation (the former London Olympics site)
