IOF takes steps to improve IT quality at major events

To improve the IT quality at championships and World Cup events, the IOF Council has decided on the immediate implementation of a new set of recommendations.

The Council has agreed to the IOF IT Commission’s recommendations for IT quality improvements.

– The aim is to secure high quality events. With today’s online possibilities, IT is the most important component for increasing and improving the visibility of orienteering. It has unfortunately also proven to be the most complex and sensitive part of event organisation, says IOF CEO Tom Hollowell.

The new recommendations have three main parts; IT Quality Requirements documents which the IT Commission has been developing will be finalised and included in the contracts between the IOF and event organisers, an IT Senior Event Advisor role will be instituted for all major events, and the IOF office will accredit and contract with service providers for timekeeping, punching and GPS systems.

The background to these recommendations is trouble with punching and timekeeping systems at events during the last few years. The recommendations are based on an analysis of the overall scope of IT requirements, carried out by the IT commission at the request of the IOF Council, following the cancelled World Cup event in Sweden last summer.

– The recommendations are aimed at facilitating the work of event organisers regarding the wide range of IT systems at an IOF major event, and will hopefully reduce the number of IT related errors organisers have had to deal with, says Tom Hollowell.
