I am not very familiar with Google Docs or Google Drive but started to look into it more and have two questions:

  1. Once a file is uploaded can others in my organization see the files and download them as they need to?
  2. Can I upload and download any file type with Google Drive?

Once a file is uploaded can others in my organization see the files and download them as they need to?

You will have to setup sharing options; also unless its set to Public I think others will need to have Google accounts to manage the access rights.

Can I upload and download any file type with Google Drive?

Not 'any' type, but it covers a lot of the common use cases: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google_Drive#Supported_file_formats

Edit: As @William Jackson points out in the comment below, this is the list of files that can be edited in docs, if you only care about storage then it should accept any file type.

This is not technically correct. The Google Docs online apps can view and edit 15 different file types, but you can upload and share absolutely any file type into Google Drive. I store some .exe files there. –  William Jackson Oct 12 '12 at 12:02
