Chamber of Control, Georgia Republic
The site was founded in October 2007, and in May 2011, the Chamber of Control of the Republic of Georgia took over the website. This national government body was established by the National Council of Independent Georgia.

To achieve these goals, the Chamber of Control employed three strategic focal points: professional development; organizational development; and, corporate reputation and external communication.
