The London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) is the private sector company responsible for staging and hosting the 2012 Games.
It has a £2bn budget, with almost all of it to be raised from the private sector.
This commercial revenue will come from several sources. LOCOG receives income from the International Olympic Committee (IOC) as well as generating its own income from sales of tickets, merchandise and, most importantly, a domestic sponsorship programme. See our international and UK partners
The Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) is the public sector body responsible for the delivery of the new venues and infrastructure required for the London 2012 Games. The ODA budget is drawn entirely from the public sector.
The ODA is funded by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, the Greater London Authority, the London Development Agency and the Olympic Lottery Distributor.
This funding is contributing to the construction of the venues and infrastructure in the Olympic Park; the facilities at Weymouth and Portland, Broxbourne and Eton Dorney; and the legacy that will follow the Games.
£2.2bn of National Lottery funds are helping to create the facilities to host the Games, providing a long lasting legacy for the people of east London and the wider UK. The Lottery will share in the profits made from land and property sales in the future.
As well as part funding the venues and infrastructure required to host the Games, the National Lottery is also playing a key role in funding work that will lead to increased participation in sport at a community and grassroots level and deliver improved community services and facilities.
This funding sits alongside other programmes designed to support our leading Olympic and Paralympic athletes in their mission to win medals at the world's greatest sporting event.
