The French National Olympic Committee (CNOSF), the City of Paris, the State and the Ile-de-France Region have set up the “Paris - Ile-de-France 2012” government-based interest group with the aim of presenting Paris's bid for the Games of the XXX Olympiad and for the Paralympic Games in 2012.

Presided by Bertrand DELANOE, Mayor of Paris, the Group has the mission of supporting and promoting this bid on the national and international stage, while preserving the ideal and spirit of Olympism, in compliance with the directives provided by the IOC.
The Group’s structure brings together public and private persons in a completely transparent manner.
It comprises 3 managing bodies:
- The Founding Committee
- The Executive Committee
- The Bid Committee
• 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.
