The Mayor


With members of the Federation of Small Business still reporting that they are being locked out of local government contracts with too few contracts remaining within the London area and too few going to micro and small businesses , will you ensure that the 'CompeteFor' procurement portal remains in existence after the 2012 Games as a measurement of legacy and best practice to enable businesses to fill in a single pre-qualification questionnaire as opposed to varying local government procurement requirements?

I committed to strengthen CompeteFor in my manifesto and have already instructed my officers to progress work on sourcing a new commercial model for the service which will be in place from April 2013.
