One of the primary functions of the AGO Committee is to approve all audit and investigation reports. The AGO Committee also conducts the applicant search and makes a recommendation to the City Council on the selection of the OIA Director.

§2-10-5 of the Accountability in Government Ordinance creates the Accountability in Government Oversight (AGO) Committee. The AGO Committee is a management committee and not a public board, commission or committee and is not subject to the Open Meetings Act. The AGO Committee does not have authority to formulate public policy. One of the primary functions of the AGO Committee is to approve all audit and investigation reports. The AGO Committee also conducts the applicant search and makes a recommendation to the City Council on the selection of the OIA Director.

The AGO Committee consists of five members from the community at large. The Mayor and one City Councilor, appointed annually by the City Council President, shall be nonvoting ex-officio members. The Mayor and the appointed City Councilor may send designees to the Committee meetings.
