For Games-related costs, the focus will be on reviewing venue requirements and capacities, and maximising sharing opportunities. It will also mean reducing the venue rental periods and looking to adapt service levels to actual needs and use. Some of this work is being undertaken based on data collected in Sochi and Rio, which is allowing the IOC to better understand actual Games needs.
Finally, enhancing Games governance will be based on creating stronger models of collaboration between the IOC, stakeholders and each Organising Committee from the very start of the project. A whole range of measures linked to these three themes will be presented to the IOC Executive Board this December, before being presented to the IOC Session in PyeongChang next February. A phased implementation will follow, with some current Games hosts already able to take advantage of the outcomes.
