The 65th Plenary Session of the Administrative Conference of the United States will be held Friday, June 10th.  During the session, the Conference Assembly will consider and vote on two recommendations:

1. Aggregate Agency Adjudication: The proposed recommendation provides guidance to agencies on the use of aggregation techniques to resolve similar claims in adjudications.  It sets forth procedures for determining whether aggregation is appropriate.  It also considers what kinds of aggregation techniques should be used in certain cases and offers guidance on how to structure the aggregation proceedings to promote both efficiency and fairness.

2. Agency Information Dissemination in the Internet Era: The proposed recommendation associated with this project is titled Consumer Complaint Databases. The proposed recommendation encourages agencies that make consumer complaints publicly available through online databases or downloadable data sets to adopt and publish written policies governing the dissemination of such information to the public.
