Order on Government Video Production
New Policy for the
Production of Video Programming by District Government Agencies
The District of Columbia
Office of Cable Television (OCT) is responsible for the coordination,
management and oversight of District government television channels
and the programming that appears on those channels. As a part of
OCT's duties, it produces programming and provides coverage of events
and proceedings that concern the District government and community.
OCT provides coverage of hearings and proceedings before the Council
of the District of Columbia, events organized by the Mayor and executive
branch government agencies, and other events that take place within
the District of Columbia. Additionally, OCT produces original programming
for the purpose of providing information to District residents.
Order is applicable to all District government department, agencies
and offices under the authority of the Mayor. The Order establishes
the responsibilities of District agencies regarding the creation
of audio-visual information. Specifically, the Order establishes
parameters designed to ensure that the agencies' messages are consistent
with the communications of the Mayor and the District government.
In addition, it ensures that government resources are used in the
most efficient manner possible.
