The Governance Commission was established by an Act of the Legislature in 2007 to champion the social, economic and political development of Liberia. The Commission carries out this mandate through research and consultations with Liberians on issues affecting governance in Liberia. It publishes its research findings and recommends policy and institutional reforms that are designed to improve public service delivery, private- sector performance and the living standards of all Liberians.

The Commission has five Mandate Areas. These include: Political and Legal Reforms; Public Sector Reforms; Civic Education; National Identity and National Visioning; and National Integrity System and Monitoring, Evaluation, Research and Publications. All of these Mandate Areas are headed by Commissioners, one of whom is appointed to serve as Chairman and another as the Vice Chairman.

As per the Governance Commission’s Act, the general mandate of the Commission is to ‘promote good governance by advising, designing and formulating appropriate policies and institutional arrangements and frameworks required for achieving good governance and promote integrity at all levels of society and within every public and private institution.

Therefore, formulating policies, proffering recommendations and implementation strategies for the advancement of good governance are key to fulfilling GC’s mandate to Liberians.
