A scorecard will be used to judge bids for London 2012 Games contracts, with companies aware of the commercial and technical themes on which they will be evaluated. A scorecard will be used to judge bids for London 2012 Games contracts, with companies aware of the commercial and technical themes on which they will be evaluated.

As well as cost, judgments will be made for safety and security, equalities and inclusion, environment, quality and functionality, and legacy.

The Olympic Delivery Authority's (ODA) Procurement Policy, launched last week, reveals it will apply its scorecard to the procurement of direct contracts and will ask contractors to measure its sub-contractors and suppliers in the same way.

A spokesman for the ODA said the scorecard was created after last July's draft proposal, to reflect the themes raised by over 60 companies and organisations during the consultation period.

He said: "Cost is important but we're not just going for lowest price. We're making strong commitments to health and safety and we want contractors to do the same."

ODA objectives include working with suppliers with good human rights records and recycling 90 per cent of demolition material.

The ODA last month launched two websites to allow companies to view upcoming contracts and tender online.
