The London 2012 Olympic games organising committee is searching for a technology partner to help it integrate all internal and external back office information systems to run the games.
The multi-million pound contract will cover elements such as costs and revenues, facility requirements, information about the route of Olympic and Paralympic torch relays, plans and data for the allocation of tickets, and workforce and volunteers scheduling.
“We are looking for a company to supply an integrated solution for the storage and management of information traditionally generated from multiple sources and technology platforms,” said London 2012 chief executive Paul Deighton.
“Putting this integrated system in place at this early stage will enable us to scale up our organisation not only at the significant pace required by the Games, but also in a controlled and efficient manner,” he said.
The organising committee said that instead of having information located across individual component systems, the new approach will provide a single repository of recorded information relating to the preparation, delivery and legacy of the London Games.
The integrated system would also facilitate faster and more effective decision making, as well as avoiding the need to reconcile duplicative and independent systems, said the committee.
Companies interested in delivering the integrated information solution can respond to a Pre-Qualification Questionnaire (PQQ) at the official London 2012 website: www.london2012.com/business
