VANOC central records

This series is one of the two main accumulations of VANOC’s core business records (the other being the digital records managed using Microsoft SharePoint 2007). The records document operational activities VANOC engaged in to prepare for and execute the 2010 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games, and administrative activities required to sustain VANOC as an organization. Records in this series relate to:

Communicating and managing relationships with the general public (including promotion and marketing of the Games), members of the Olympic Family (International Olympic/Paralympic Committees, National Olympic/Paralympic Committees, International Sporting Federations), Federal, Provincial, Municipal and First Nations governments, sponsors, broadcasters and media, and community groups and organizations;

Organizing sporting competitions (including related supporting services and logistics such as transportation, medical services and drug testing), ceremonies (opening, closing and medal presentations), and cultural events;

Preparing venues for competition and non-competition events, and athlete accommodations, including the design and construction of new venues where required;

Governance of VANOC and the management of its financial and legal affairs, employees and volunteers, and office space.

Records in this series are primarily unpublished analogue textual documents, publications, photographs, artistic drawings, and renderings of technical drawings, architectural designs and maps. Some digital records stored on optical media (CDs and DVDs) are present; these were interfiled among the received files. They have been physically separated from the records, but remain intellectually associated with the records through the relevant file descriptions. This series does not include the core accumulation of digital business records. These were managed using Microsoft SharePoint 2007, and did not use the same organization as the records in this series.

Records have been organized into the following subseries based on VANOC’s records classification system (RCS). The RCS was organized into 50 sections, each related to a major functional area. See individual subseries descriptions for detailed scope and content notes.

Series contains files of the Administration business unit. This unit: led the development of the organization's strategic and business plans, provided planning and logistical support to other administrative units, and maintained BidCorp's central information databases.

The series is further divided into three subseries: General Meetings, Personnel, and Records Management System.

Athlete and Sport Development

Series contains records relating to BidCorp's Athlete and Sport Development (ASD) plan. Working with the Government of British Columbia and other partners to fund a program called "LegaciesNow," the purpose of the initiative was to ensure that the bid process did not divert resources from the sport system, but rather, regardless of outcome, strengthened the system through targeted funding efforts. LegaciesNow allowed BidCorp to increase awareness of and support for the Olympic bid, while not being forced to manage sports programs directly.

The series is further divided into two subseries: LegaciesNow, Sport Centres and Athlete Development.

Olympic Torch Relay - torchbearer photographs

Series consists of photographs of torchbearers participating in the Olympic Torch Relay. The series is organized into files, with one field for each day of the relay. Each day typically has one photograph of each torchbearer participating in the relay on that day. Some torchbearers were not captured.

The images in this series were selected by VANOC staff/contractors from the daily images taken by the photographers assigned to cover the relay. VANOC organized the images into four groups - one for VANOCs own use, and three for distribution to the relay's corporate and government sponsors: Coca-Cola, Royal Bank of Canada, and the Government of Canada. As such, this series has been organized into three sub-series to reflect these groupings:

S08-1 Coca-Cola Olympic Torch Relay photograph highlights
S08-2 Royal Bank of Canada Olympic Torch Relay photograph highlights
S08-3 VANOC and Government of Canada Olympic Torch Relay photograph highlights

The content of the VANOC image set and the Government of Canada image set were found to be identical in content and organization, so only one set was retained, and assigned to a single sub-series.
