The Transparency Oregon Advisory Commission (TOAC)


The Transparency Oregon Advisory Commission was created in 2009, through the approval of House Bill 2500, to advise the Department of Administrative Services (DAS) on the creation, content and operation of the Oregon Transparency website.

House Bill 3099 transferred the Transparency Program and website responsibilities from DAS to the State Chief Information Officer in 2015. The TOAC continues to provide oversight to the Transparency Program.

New GEOHub Portal Launched


GEOHub is Oregon’s single source for Authoritative Geospatial Data.

In 2017, the Oregon Legislature passed House Bill 2906, now codified as ORS 276A.500-515, to improve and increase the sharing of critical geospatial data.

GEOHub is built and designed to serve as a one-stop hub for geospatial data and resources for the public and public bodies.

GEOHub stores and catalogs geospatial Framework data which are statewide datasets that serve multiple purposes and are necessary to support the business processes of government agencies.
