The Open Oakland document search site contains a variety of Oakland County documents. This includes agendas, minutes, reports, resolutions, County Ordinances, Interlocal Agreements between county and various municipalities, and copies of each official election canvass. There are also complete minutes of the caucus meetings of the majority party beginning in 2008. The records span from 1970 (the beginning of the Board of Commissioners) to present.

The records are not merely chronologically scanned copies. They are also searchable by keyword, making the process transparent. While the information has always been public record, to this point searching for it required someone to come to the County Courthouse and physically search through the paper records, which were stored in old boxes.
