Policy and oversight

Welcome to Connecticut’s official page for councils, boards, and commissions within the Department of Administrative Services. These groups, which handle everything from educational technology, to fire safety, are divided into agency boards and commissions – which are directly managed by DAS – and independent boards and commissions – which are within DAS for administrative purposes but retain independent decision-making authority.

Learn about the work of DAS boards and commissions.
