Office of Municipal Securities

The Office of Municipal Securities coordinates the SEC's municipal securities activities and advises the Commission on policy matters relating to the municipal securities market. States, cities, and other political subdivisions, such as school districts, issue municipal securities to raise money. The Office assists the Division of Enforcement and other Divisions on municipal securities matters. The Office also provides technical assistance in the development and implementation of major SEC initiatives in the municipal securities area, including the coordination of municipal enforcement actions. The Office works closely with the municipal securities industry to educate state and local officials about risk management issues and foster a thorough understanding of the Commission's policies.
