CompeteFor was originally created to open up the supply chain of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games related contracts. As a result of this, many CompeteFor users have been involved in supplying to the Games and can now champion their involvement in the sporting spectacular through the Supplier Recognition Scheme (SRS).
Eligible suppliers are given specific designation relating to their supply to the London 2012 Games. For example “Supplier of architectural design services (Velodrome) to the London 2012 Games.” Businesses can use the designation as well as a case study of their involvement in business to business communications including on their website, in pitches and tender documents and at trade shows both in the UK and internationally.
The SRS has been developed in partnership with the Government, British Olympic Association and International Olympic Committee.
British businesses that have successfully delivered goods or services to the London 2012 Games can apply for a FREE suppliers recognition scheme licence online at www.srs2012.com.
