Description of this AgencyDescription of this Agency
The Office of Commonwealth Games Coordination (OCGC) was established by the Victorian Government in February 2002. It was located within the Department for Victorian Communities.

The Honorable Justin Madden, MLC, was the Minister for the Commonwealth Games and also held the portfolio of Sport and Recreation.

The role of OCGC was to ensure the effective delivery by the Victorian Government of the Commonwealth Games through management and coordination of all relevant bodies involved.

OCGC had the role of coordinating all areas of games activity, from ticketing to infrastructure.

The Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth was a landmark event in Melbourne's history creating lasting benefits for Victorians, Australians and the Commonwealth. As well as hosting a great event, the Victorian Government through the Games delivered lasting infrastructure, social, environmental and ecomomic benefits to the Victorian community.

Further, the Games attracted visitors, generated jobs and investment, and built better infrastructure. They brought people together. They helped us celebrate what we have in common, and they encouraged an appreciation of what makes us (Victorians) different.
