Regulatory Advocacy – Our development team is focused on the development of our Regulatory Advocacy support. We are targeting February 2017 as a go live date where we will support within the action center your advocates being able to submit text comments as well as attachments.  As a part of this effort we are creating new entities that include Agency, Agency Staff and Regulations.  The ultimate vision for Agency Advocacy support will permit our users to record non-comment related activities, such as emails, meetings, phone calls to agencies and staff to support all of your regulatory government affairs activities. This will be developed after the initial comment submission efforts.

  • Included are some mock-ups we have designed. These are subject to change based on the functionality we are delivering in the initial roll-out.
