The Olympic Delivery Authority, which has responsibility for procurement of the International Broadcast Centre for 2012, is reviewing the project to ensure that it remains within budget, meets requirements for 2012, and provides a strong platform for future business and employment growth. My Board of Advisors and the LDA's Olympic Legacy Directorate are working very closely with the ODA to ensure that these objectives are met and fully embedded within the Legacy Masterplan Framework for the Olympic Park. I am 100% committed to securing a great legacy for this facility and have already opened discussions with potential end users.
