Public Email Subscription Service

The Department of Business Oversight (DBO) offers a free email subscription service through our contractor GovDelivery. This service allows you to sign up for email updates about topics relevant to your interests.

To receive DBO’s GovDelivery email updates, click on the Subscription Manager link below and provide the email address where you want the notifications to be sent and select the notifications you want to receive. If you are already receiving email notifications you can use the Subscription Manager to change your email address, modify your password, add or delete subscriptions, or remove your email address from this service.

Maintaining Privacy

When you sign up for this subscription service, you will be asked to provide your email address and the updates you would like to receive. GovDelivery will use the information you provide to deliver the notifications you have requested and to allow you to update your subscription preferences. DBO and GovDelivery will not share your personal information with third parties for promotional purposes.
