Sharepoint migration from UNC shares. User created sites versus global admin created sites.

We are moving from unc shares to Sharepoint.   The Sharepoint platform is managed by our corporate IT in India and I'm having trouble getting answers.   Isn't it true that the site we use should be created by the global administrator and not by a user?   How do i tell the difference between a user created site and a global admin created site.     This platform will be heavily used in a production financial services environment and I want to be sure we are starting off on the right process.    I would appreciate some help which has been difficult to get from our overseas coworkers.

The site created by the global admin are probably maybe site collections. User created sites are probably maybe sub sites. This is just a guess since it is possible to know for sure without working in the environment.

As far as a migration from shares, the type of site doesn't really matter, but the level of access is important. If you are being asked to migrate the files in to document libraries, you will need contribute permission on the document library.

Good luck...
