Breaking news from ihotdesk, the home of IT outsourcing in London:
Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) should "get involved" with the Olympic Delivery Authority's CompeteFor website.

Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) should "get involved" with the Olympic Delivery Authority's CompeteFor website.

The Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) has welcome the launched of the site, which will be used as a source of business for Olympic Games-related opportunities.

Simon Briault, spokesperson for the FSB, said: "If you go as a small business to register as a supplier and you don't meet the requirements, the site will automatically transfer you to your local Business Link which will give you advice on how you can qualify."

He added: "The other good thing about the website is that big contractors will be compelled to advertise sub-contracting opportunities on that website. That gives small businesses a chance to get involved."

CompeteFor is a way of making sure that SMEs do not get "ousted" by larger companies when it comes to obtaining Olympic contracts.

According to the London 2012 Business Network over 75,000 future business opportunities worth an estimated £6 billion will be allocated as part of the Olympic Games over the coming years.
