The Office of Open Government (OOG) is an independent office under the Board of Ethics and
Government Accountability (BEGA), charged with advancing open governance in the District of
Columbia. The OOG ensures city-wide compliance with the Open Meetings Act (OMA), which

official action during public meetings and to provide proper notice and detailed records of meetings.
The OMA Complaint Form may be submitted in person, online at OPEN-DC.gov, or via U.S Postal Service

be marked on the outside of the envelope “Open Meetings Complaint”. Complaints may also
be submitted by electronic mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. The submission of complaints via the
