Steve, great suggestions. The Regulations.gov team is currently developing the next iteration of the website over the next six months, and part of what we’re trying to do is open up the rulemaking process to include these key ideas. So, the notion of better navigation is key as well as an integrated social media outreach process. More than that, though, we’re planning on providing a means for people to be able to see each others’ comments. It’s a good option. Comment-on-comment features are also in the works. Definitely, we intend to give a follow-up of all the website suggestions we receive and next steps.
Presently, our communications budget is small with one FTE (me, 1/2 FTE in Sept). We started a process of formalizing communications this summer with the help of two great summer interns when I came on board. Once we gradually ramp up additional communication channels and tactics over the course of a fiscal year, reach out to various stakeholders, build relationships on the Hill & federal agencies, create key content media, we’ll have built a case for additional funding. With a good strategy, focus, public feedback, and synergy of great team, we’ll move the needle.
