Following Ecorys’s successful delivery of the PE & Sport Strategy for Young People Administration Contract (Department for Education), we are now managing the School Games Organiser (SGO) programme. This funds 450 SGO posts in host schools across England to work with their network of local schools on increasing numbers of young people involved in competitive sport and help support the School Games. Ecorys' role is to undertake the financial administration for the SGO programme: issue grant award letters, make payments to SGO hosts, manage a helpline and audit SGO spend through year end reports.
In 2013 Ecorys developed and manages an online portal for SGOs to report termly on progress against their annual plans to Sport England and Youth Sport Trust. The portal allows Sport England to interrogate and visualise the data and produce bespoke reports.
