What We Do
PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD
While purportedly opening policy decisions for constituent input, a public comment period is actually a confusing process. Each comment period—even those before the same agency—is governed by its own set of complex rules. And many affected constituents will be ignored because their comments don’t meet highly changeable, bureaucratic guidelines regarding:
- Which audiences will be given particular weight.
- The format comments must take to be considered.
- Restrictions on comment length.
- Specific content that must be included.
- Where and to whom comments must be addressed.
You can give affected individuals the help they need to be heard. As part of each NextWave public comment program, we supply mobilization assistance to meet the needs of interested parties. Our services encompass:
We utilize fine-grained list development methods to identify affected constituencies and engage only those individuals with a significant, verifiable connection to the issue.
- Documenting Impact
NextWave’s GO Team captures detailed information regarding the consequences of the ruling on the individual or business, and ensures that this data becomes part of the submission.
- Comment Structure
We research the specific requirements for the public comment period and assist advocates one-on-one in formatting their letters to warrant maximum consideration.
The NextWave principals have an extensive background directing meaningful constituent input to various agencies. We understand the process and its challenges, and we can design a program that works for you.
