Well, Olympus makes tons of different things that requires imaging sensors. High-speed video cameras, scientific equipment of all sorts and applications, and consumer cameras with varying sensor formats. I imagine they probably have partnerships with a dozen different sensor designers and manufacturers for what isn't in fact designed in-house.

Buying Panasonic sensors have probably been a good deal, but there is no reason to believe that Olympus wouldn't go elsewhere for a better deal.

Panasonic supplies Olympus's sensors and have done for some time. The only thing I don't believe is that the sensor in the OMD is the same as that in the G3. Measurable differences between the two cameras (thinking specifically the lower ISO DR) would suggest otherwise.
