Answer for Olympic Staffing

Answered By: 
The Mayor

There is a small team of staff in the Policy and Partnerships Directorate , five of who work primarily on the Olympics. The team work with colleagues across the organisation to ensure the delivery of Games legacy and benefits to Londoners.

The current team comprises the following posts:-

1 x Grade 13 4 x Grade 8 plus 1 secondee from the Department for Culture Media and Sport.

The job descriptions are a matter of record within the papers of the Assembly's Business Management and Appointments Committee.

In addition, my Director of Business Planning and Regeneration, his Business Manager, and my Senior Advisor on Olympic Events and Tourism also dedicate some time to the project.

A summary of the GLA expenditure on the Games, excluding the £57.7m funding package, as reported to the Budget Committee in October 2006 is shown below:
