Boards and commissions
Utah has over 400 executive boards and committees including policy, advisory, and licensing boards and many nominating committees. The Governor has authority to appoint or confirm members to about 275 of these executive boards. The Governor issues an annual report of all executive boards and commissions and maintains a database containing information about all executive boards, commissions, committees, councils, task forces, advisory groups, working groups, or study groups. To be included in this database, a board or commission must have a limited and defined membership, operate for more than six months, and be created by an executive branch official.

A Public Body is a board, commission, or committee that holds public meetings. According to UCA 52-4-103(7), a Public Body is "any administrative, advisory, executive, or legislative body of the state or its political subdivisions that is created by the Utah Constitution, statue, rule, ordinance, or resolution; consists of two or more persons; expends, disburses, or is supported in whole or in part by tax revenue; and is vested with the authority to make decisions regarding the public's business. "Public Body" does not include a: political party, political group, or political caucus; or conference committee, rules committee, or sifting committee of the Legislature."
Cabinet level boards and commissions are listed at the Department (N2) level.
