Public Participation in Agency Decision Making

Public participation is an integral part of many agency decision-making processes—including rulemaking, adjudication, licensing, and investigation. This project will survey and comprehensively analyze legal requirements and policies related to public participation in agency decision-making processes. It will examine federal statutes, presidential directives, Office of Management and Budget guidance, and agency rules and policies to identify legal requirements and policies governing when and how different agencies engage with the public as part of their decision-making processes. The project will result in the publication of a new sourcebook that will assist agency officials, Congress, and the judiciary in performin their work, and inform the public.
