Brisbane Organising Committee for the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games

Brisbane Organising Committee for the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games (BOCOG) was established by the Brisbane Olympic and Paralympic Games Arrangements Act 2021 [1] passed by the Queensland Parliament in December 2021. It is a statutory authority and its role is "to plan, organise and deliver the Olympic and Paralympic Games in accordance with the host contract".[1]

The legislation outlines the functions and board composition of the Organising Committee. At least 50% of the nominated directors holding office must be women.[1] It is likely that the Board will change between 2021 and 2032 due to changes in roles and term limitations.

Prior to Brisbane winning the right to host the 2032 Olympics and Paralympics, the Commonwealth Government committed to fund half the costs of critical infrastructure with the Queensland Government. An Olympic Infrastructure Agency would be established with shared governance arrangements and oversee all projects from the planning, scoping and design phase through to contracting, construction and delivery.[2]
