• The “Founding Committee”: adopts decisions designed to ensure that the objectives pursued by the group
are achieved. In particular, it is responsible for drawing up the candidature
file and defining the communication strategy.
• The “Executive Committee”: in charge of the supervision of the bid.
• The “Bid Committee”: plays a part in defining the group's policy and determining the bid’s strategy
It is made up of eminent personalities with a variety of competencies, with different
sensibilities and from various backgrounds: elected members of public authorities
and representatives of the sports world (federations and athletes), the State
and the business sector.
In addition, to optimise its understanding of the specific characteristics of
organising the Olympic and Paralympic Games, the Group is calling in many international
experts recognised for their competencies and experience regarding such events
(with regards to finance, security, transport, environment…).
Furthermore, the Paris 2012 Bid Committee is working on a constant basis, in
close collaboration with the various departments of the founding members. This
ensures that the ambitions, motivations and preoccupations of all those concerned
are taken into consideration at an early stage in working groups, so as to ensure
concerted and consistent decision-making.
