Agencies, Boards and Commissions - VOTE 1812

The Agencies, Boards and Commissions associated with Ministry of Government Services provide oversight to ensure effective governance, accountability, and relationship management.

The Advertising Review Board is designated as a mandatory central service for the procurement of advertising, public and media relations, and creative communications services for the OPS. This helps ensure ministries and government agencies acquire these services in a manner that is fair, open, transparent and accessible to qualified suppliers.

The Conflict of Interest Commissioner has responsibility for certain conflict of interest and political activity matters as they apply to appointees and employees of ministries and public bodies and to certain employees of ministries with respect to financial declarations. The Commissioner handles requests for advice or rulings on specific conflict of interest or political activity matters, advises on financial declarations, approves conflict of interest rules submitted by public bodies and reviews and approves adjudicative tribunals' ethics plans.
