The Oregon Government Ethics Commission (OGEC) will impartially and effectively administer and enforce Oregon's government ethics laws for the benefit of Oregon's citizens. The Commission will emphasize education in achieving its mission.
The OGEC was established by vote of the people in 1974. The Commission is comprised of a nine-member citizen commission as well as nine staff members who are all charged with enforcing government ethics laws. Oregon Government Ethics laws prohibit public officials from using or attempting to use their official position or office to obtain financial gain or to avoid a financial detriment. In addition, it requires public disclosure of economic conflicts of interest. The OGEC also enforces state laws which require lobbyists and the entities they represent to register and file quarterly reports of their expenditures. The third area of OGEC jurisdiction is the executive session provisions of public meetings law.
