The Transparency Oregon Advisory Commission was launched in 2009, through the approval of House Bill 2500

Initially, the commission advised the Department of Administrative Services (DAS) on the creation, content, and operation of the Oregon Transparency website. In 2015, House Bill 3099 transferred the Oregon Transparency Program and website responsibilities from DAS to the State Chief Information Officer.

Today, Oregon Revised Statutes (2017) ORS 276A.250–276A.262 address both the Transparency Commission, and the Oregon Transparency Program and website.
