The Office of Open Government works with the Executive Office of the Mayor to ensure all public bodies, including boards and commissions, are complying with the requirements of the Open Meetings Act (OMA). The OMA sets out specific requirements of public bodies to properly notice and provide detailed records of all official actions taken by members of public bodies convened to consider, conduct and/or advise on District Government operations. District boards and commissions vary in size and complexity, and are established by statute or Mayor's Orders.
The Mayor's Office of Talent and Appointments (MOTA) administers the recruitment and vetting of all public body members and provides the most current information regarding the operational status of public bodies. Please visit the Mayor's Office of Talent and Appointments' (MOTA) website for additional information.
