Welcome, Fellow Ombuds!
The Coalition of Federal Ombudsman is the principal interagency forum that provides collaboration, advice, and guidance on professional Ombuds standards, skills development, program development, and effectiveness. Coalition members and committees work as an integrated and networked enterprise to increase the professionalism and effectiveness of Ombuds serving United States government agencies by sharing experiences, ideas, policies, standards, best practices, and innovative approaches to providing world-class Ombuds services.
Meetings are held from 1:30 to 3pm E.T. on the second Wednesday of each month, except in October, when the annual conference is held. Location and call-in information is sent to COFO mailing lists at least one week prior to each meeting.
