Too Small To Compete?

The Liberal Democrats have warned that the organisers of the London 2012 Olympics have failed to award small businesses, promised a share of the games, despite the fact that a special website (CompeteFor) for matching Olympic suppliers with buyers has been set up.

The Liberal Democrats claim that the ODA had awarded 880 contracts, but only 140 of them were through the website. The website cost the taxpayer £5M to set up.

However, the ODA claim that awarded 550 contracts before the website was launched.
