Dear Government Olympic Executive,

I would like a complete breakdown of original projections of Government spending, and the actual Government spending, on the 2012 London Olympic Games. Could the data include:

- original spending projections/budget for the 2012 Olympics in 2005 (when London won the bid) - including a breakdown of how much would be spent on: labour and employee costs and pay; building and redevelopment of the Olympic Park and the surrounding areas (architecture, resources and land); security; catering; etc.; and how much would be outsourced to non-governmental/private companies, and for what roles.

- all spending projections in the subsequent years between 2005 and 2012, regarding the Olympics, including a breakdown of how much would be spent on: labour and employee costs and pay; building and redevelopment of the Olympic Park and the surrounding areas (architecture, resources and land); security; catering etc.; and how much would be outsourced to non-governmental/private companies, and for what roles.

- the final spending totals of the Olympics in 2012, including a breakdown of how much was spent on: labour and employee costs and pay; building and redevelopment of the Olympic Park and the surrounding areas (architecture, resources and land); security; catering etc.; and how much money would be outsourced to non-governmental/private companies, and for what roles.

- Projected and the actual spending by the Government (2005-12) on projects regarding the Olympic Legacy, broken down by region, sport, and the type of projects - grassroots/academy/semi-professional/professional.

I would prefer to receive this information electronically,preferably as a data set, eg. in Excel, NOT as a PDF.

If the decision is made to withhold some of this data using exemptions in the Data Protection Act, please inform me of that fact and cite the exemptions used.

If some parts of this request are easier to answer than others, I would ask that you release the available data as soon as possible.

If you need any clarification then please do not hesitate to contact me. Under Section 16 it is your duty to provide advice and assistance and so I would expect you to contact me if you find this request unmanageable in any way.

I would be grateful if you could confirm in writing that you have received this request, and I look forward to hearing from you within the 20-working day statutory time period.

Yours faithfully,

Sean Stanfield

Dear Government Olympic Executive,

After 20 working days, you have failed to provide me with a response regarding my FOIA request relating to Costs and Spending Breakdown of the 2012 London Olympic Games, sent on the 21st February, 2015 - https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/c...

So far, you have failed to respond to my FOIA request, or provided me with a reason why the information has been delayed, thereby breaking the law under Section 16 of the Data Protection Act.

I would therefore like to request an internal review as to the reason for the delay in response to my FOIA request, and contacted regarding the cause for this delay. Similarly, I would still like the information originally requested, in my original FOIA request.

Yours faithfully,

Sean Stanfield
