A measure of performance

Reporting Review

August 2008

Tags: reporting, monitoring

Whilst a report on reporting may sound like something from Yes Minister, a good monitoring and reporting system is essential to manage a complex programme like the Olympic and Paralympic Games. The Commission has reviewed the sustainability reporting processes in each Key Stakeholder and the programme-wide sustainability reporting.

Key Findings

  • There have been delays in developing programme-wide sustainability reporting
  • A framework for these reports has now been agreed
  • A sustainability reporting system across the programme urgently needs to be finalised and used
  • The ODA has an effective internal reporting system that covers a wide range of issues, including their sustainability objectives
  • The Government Olympic Executive (GOE) need to complete the delivery plans for their Legacy Action Plan and Public Service Agreement as soon as possible

Recommendations

  • GOE to urgently finalise and implement a sustainability reporting system across the programme by October 2008, the principal elements of which will be key milestones, KPIs, programme and risk management.  This will enable the programme and agenda for the London 2012 Sustainability Group to be proposed by GOE and the Chair and facilitate more effective and collective management of the sustainability agenda.

  • GOE to ensure completion of the Delivery Plans that implement the sustainability aspects of the Legacy Action Plan and PSA as soon as possible. The Delivery Plans need to be integrated with each other and demonstrate their linkages with related plans from other Key Stakeholders. They also need to form part of clear and effective reporting processes.
