This research aimed to investigate amongst councilors, municipal government and members of the Public Prosecutor's Office of Goiás - MP-GO the social and institutional anchoring of public policy councils to strengthen these formal spaces of accountability. One can conceptualize anchoring as the actuation of the councils supported in the presence, participation and approval of the people and institutions – audience – which must be able to equalize the power differences related to economic, social, cultural issues, among others –reach. In this case, social accountability can be described as the participation of individuals and institutions in the management of public policies. It is a multiple case study, longitudinal, qualitative in nature, that through content analysis, based on triangulation. Interviews, field notes of non-participant observation and analysis of documents such as laws, internal regiments and council minutes were used to perform the triangulation. The councils were chosen because they participated more emphatically in a work to strengthen social control carried out by MP-GO. Thus, the research identified the presence of anchoring elements such as: audience, reach and political tendency in seven cases, five municipal councils of health and two municipal councils of education located in the State of Goiás. To support the results, NVivo software was used to contribute with the content analysis. The results demonstrated that the audience and reach are portrayed in the laws and internal regulations in a clear end well defined way, contrasting with practices that are not supported by the legal precepts. These practices do not extrapolate the audience and especially strain the reach that still needs to evolve to support the diversity of actors involved in the public policies. As for the political tendency, there is a clear appreciation of the responsiveness and aspects related to public policy control and oversight. This seems to limit the anchorage, mostly renegade when identifying the effectiveness of the actions of these councils, considering how little it impacted or was impacted by the council's achievements. The anchorage does not seem to have contributed to the effectiveness of the actions and these also did not have the strengthening of the anchorage as one of its aspects
