Long-term partnership contracting in practice / Nicola Dempsey, C. L. Martínez Velarde, Mel Burton

Dempsey, Nicola | Martínez Velarde, C. L. | Burton, Mel

This chapter examines Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, the largest new park to be created in the UK for over a century. The authors study the way in which this high-profile park in London is managed via a long-term contract-based partnership and explore how the 2012 Olympic Games legacy has a bearing on management arrangements. Calling on interviews with stakeholders, they show how the governance structure is underpinned by a decentralised approach to parks management responsibilities. This chapter contributes to a gap in knowledge around the “thin client model” and long-term partnership-based contracts which this park adopts, which are distinct from the typical parks management arrangements around the world which are traditionally delivered by in-house public sector parks departments or with specific tasks contracted out to a private contractor
