Statewide Interoperability Governing Body

Overview

The Statewide Interoperability Governing Body (SIGB) was established in May 2009 after the consolidation of Oklahoma's two former governance structures, the Oklahoma Interoperability Executive Committee (OIEC) and the Governance Working Group (GWG). The SIGB is a formal group of public safety practitioners from across the state working with OKOHS to improve communications interoperability. Jurisdictions at the local, county, state, tribal, federal and authorized non-governmental organizations are represented.
