The Essential Tool For Efficiently Analyzing Public Comments
See through the fog to find the substance
DocketScope allows agency policy staff to effortlessly identify the “relevant matter presented” as required by the Administrative Procedure Act, freeing time for them to focus on considering the issues raised and writing targeted responses to stakeholder comments.
"When a project has thousands, perhaps millions, of comments, quality control is imperative. DocketScope™ makes quality control and quality assurance easy."
"When I am managing a project, I always immediately know who is working on what, where we are, and what we are finding by using the management tools and dashboards in DocketScope™. We don't get derailed when a mid-project data request comes in from someone senior."
"DocketScope™ makes reviewing even the most complex comments straightforward. I love having all the necessary tools and information on one screen for reviewing substantive comments and mapping text to the topics in my issue outline."
"With DocketScope™, I was able to do in a couple of days what it had taken an attorney weeks to do without DocketScope™. I was probably five times as productive."
"It is easy for me to jump back into a project in DocketScope™ as it shows me exactly where I left off and the comments that have been assigned to me for review."
"The sooner we can get through the mapping of comments, the sooner we can get to writing our responses to the significant issues. DocketScope™ makes better use of the limited time we have to get the final rule published."
"Using DocketScope™ is unbelievably easy and intuitive. In less than twenty minutes, I had set up a project, set up an issue outline, and was reviewing comments."

That means successful projects must be well-coordinated and organized, which puts a heavy burden on project managers. Plus, managers often spend as much time reviewing important submissions as they do organizing and following up with the rest of the team. Managers risk getting overwhelmed by the extra work and responsibility in many cases.Read More
