OCID Governance

Governance Committee Scope

OCID’s work is guided by a Governance Committee, which is staffed and facilitated by the Center for Evidence-based Policy.

The OCID Governance Committee has three primary functions:

  1. Provide advice and guidance on the establishment of the Child Well-being Dashboard;
  2. Advise the Center on the prioritization, development and focus of policy questions for analyses; and,
  3. Maintain OCID as a resource for public policy making purposes, and recommend strategies to maximize the knowledge and value derived from this unique dataset for public benefit.

The OCID Governance Committee will inform and be informed by the work of the Governor’s Children’s Cabinet and the Department of Administrative Services’ Chief Data Officer Advisory Group.

Governance Committee Membership

The membership of the Governance Committee includes Oregon State Legislators, directors or deputy director state agencies contributing data to OCID, Oregon’s Chief Data Officer, and representatives from the Governor’s Children’s Cabinet, the Oregon Legislative Fiscal Office, and Oregon philanthropic organizations.
