Public Comments Analysis

Balancing Project Manager and Expert Analyst Roles When Reviewing Public Comments

The public comment phase of rulemaking can be incredibly complex and involve hundreds of person-hours to complete. 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.

How DocketScope Helps Teams Respond to Client Requests

Clients or agency leaders frequently ask for more detail about various comments during or after a comments analysis project. These requests could occur at any point in the rulemaking process. Furthermore, if there are hundreds or thousands of comments, responding to the questions could take hours, especially if teams have to pore through notes and mappings in Word docs or spreadsheets. However, a software tool like DocketScope™, designed for analyzing and organizing public comments, will make it much easier to satisfy these requests with just a few clicks of the mouse.
