About the Office of Public Affairs
Peter P. Kaplan, Acting Director
The Office of Public Affairs (OPA) develops communications campaigns to promote the Federal Trade Commission's (FTC) activities and programs. As the official news bureau for the FTC, our primary objective is to help American consumers understand what the FTC is, what it does, and the value the FTC adds to their lives. We work with all of the FTC's Bureaus and Offices to identify news opportunities and implement effective media relations programs.
