2012 olympic games & paralympic games

Inspirational, safe and inclusive – our goal for the 2012 Olympic Games & Paralympic Games.

The Government Olympic Executive (GOE) exists to provide oversight and assurance of the entire Olympic and Paralympic Programme.

The GOE is the only organisation that supervises the whole £9.3 billion public sector funding package. We will ensure that the London 2012 Games are delivered on time, on budget and for the benefit of the whole country.

The GOE reports to the Rt. Hon. Tessa Jowell MP, who is Minister for the Cabinet Office, the Olympics, London and Paymaster General.

We are working closely with our key stakeholders – the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games, the Olympic Delivery Authority, the Mayor of London and the British Olympic Association – other Government departments and relevant bodies in the nations and regions.
