Services to Agencies

The Office of General Counsel is committed to providing the Governor and the Executive Branch with expert, responsive, practical and cost-effective legal services necessary to support the administration of Pennsylvania's government for the benefit of the public. 

Who Are We? 

The Office of General Counsel's Mediation Program was established June 14, 2002 by an Executive Order. The Executive Order requires each Commonwealth agency, department, board, commission and council to become familiar with the mediation process and to encourage its use whenever possible to resolve disputes. The Mediation program provides mediation, facilitation and other resolution options at the request of any commonwealth agency under the Governor's jurisdiction, any OGC Attorney, any commonwealth employee, or any party engaged in a dispute with a commonwealth agency.
