Name of creator
The Transportation, telecommunication, water, and urban development sub-fonds contains the records created by following departments: the Transportation, Water, and Telecommunications Department (TWT); the Urban Projects Department (URB); the Water and Urban Development Department (WUD); and the Transportation Department (TRP). TWT reported to the Vice President of Central Projects (CPSVP) from 1979 to 1982. URB also reported to CPSVP from 1976 to 1982. WUD and TRP subsequently reported to the Vice President of Operations Policy (OPSVP) with the termination of CPSVP in 1982.
The records in this subfonds were maintained by the Non-Regional Information Center (NRIC). The NRIC served as a centralized filing unit for the Bank, and arranged records according to Bank-wide classification schemes for the record group of administrative "central files" or "non-regional files". The NRIC served as one of multiple Information Centers for the Bank, which generally distributed the Bank's records into two main record groups: 1) general or non-regional, and 2) operational or regional. The records in this subfonds were not arranged by classification schemes or series specific to a department or division, but as a sub or sub-sub group to the larger "central files" record group. The NRIC were transferred to the custody World Bank Group Archives with the termination of NRIC in 1987.
The departments described in this subfonds were assigned sub-group or series classification numbers from NRIC. The departments often supported more than one sector at a time and this is reflected by folders that contain records of more than one sector. As a result, the records of these departments have been placed in Senior Vice President of Operations (SVPOP/OPNSV) fonds, whom the departments reported to, rather than separated and dispersed into their respective sector fonds.
