S01 - VANOC Central records

VANOC

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Records in this series are primarily unpublished analogue textual documents, publications, photographs, artistic drawings, and renderings of technical drawings, architectural designs and maps.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.
