Open Government

Enhancing government transparency is at the core of the Public Ethics Commission mission to ensure fairness, openness, honesty and integrity in City government. Our goal is City government that opens up and facilitates residents' understanding and participation, and community members collaborating to bring about meaningful change.

About

The Public Ethics Commission is charged with enforcing Oakland’s Sunshine Ordinance, which seeks to provide the public with greater opportunities to access public meetings and information.

Oakland's Sunshine Ordinance clarifies and supplements the Ralph M. Brown Act and the California Public Records Act to provide the public with greater opportunities to access public meetings and information.
