Executive Branch
2011-2012 Agencies, Boards and Commissions

INTRODUCTION

In Arizona state government, the majority of agencies are subject to the jurisdiction of the Arizona Department of Administration (ADOA) Human Resources system. However, there are some agencies that are not included in the system. Powers and duties of state agencies are usually prescribed under state statute.

A board or commission is an independent body consisting of members who are appointed by public officials, usually the governor. Boards with gubernatorial appointments are created in two ways, either by statute enacted in the state Legislature, or by a governor's executive order.

The Arizona Constitution defines the basic qualification for appointment to a state board or commission as: an individual must be a resident of Arizona and be at least 18 years of age. Most boards have more specific requirements that are described in the legislation or executive order by which they were created.
