About the Office

The Office of Public Affairs (OPA) assists the Commission in making the work of the SEC open to the public, understandable to investors and accountable to taxpayers. The Office helps every other SEC division and office accomplish the agency's mission – to protect investors, maintain fair, orderly, and efficient markets, and facilitate capital formation. OPA's principal activity is to communicate the agency's work and deliver the agency's data and other digital information to the public, market participants and other stakeholders on SEC.gov. In addition to managing SEC.gov and other digital media platforms, the Office administers internal and external communications programs.
