Malcolm Cox's comments on competitive dialogue (letters last week) were entirely apposite. The Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) promised in its bid to leave a sports facilities legacy for the City of London and the country as a whole.
If the project succeeds then the reputations of the participating partners will be assured. Failure will, however, focus attention on an unproven - and rather bizarre - procurement method and of the careers of those who devised and shared in it.
Good luck ODA you may need it if you want to avoid one of the most acrimonious public/private divorces ever.
