In November 2012, the Commission procured CAG Consultants to undertake an independent evaluation of the Commission following discussions with 2012 Key Stakeholders including the GLA, DCMS, LOCOG and LLDC.
The project was completed in mid-March 2013.
To ensure that the evaluation was carried out with sufficient independence, the Commission asked its Key Funders to establish a Steering Group, and it established a Peer Review Group. The role of the Peer Review Group (PRG) was to provide commentary on whether the project was carried out in accordance with the project methodology, and whether there were any issues which had not been addressed as part of the evaluation which were considered by the PRG to be of importance to the outcome.
The PRG delivered its commentary on the DRAFT report in February 2013. The consultants addressed many of the points raised by the PRG in the final evaluation report.
