Open Hearing to Receive Stakeholder Input

WASHINGTON – The Commission on Evidence-Based Policymaking (CEP) will hold a public hearing on October 21, 2016 in Washington, DC. The public hearing will provide an opportunity for any interested stakeholder to present their views on issues relevant to the Commission’s charge established in Public Law 114-140. This will be one of three such hearings, with others planned for the Midwest and West Coast regions in early 2017.

The October 21 public hearing will provide participants the opportunity to submit a written statement for the record, as well as make brief oral statements to members of the Commission. Oral statements will be limited to 5 minutes, and should highlight key aspects of the written submission. A limited number of speaking slots are allotted for the day, and will be filled on a first come, first served basis until all slots are full.

Parties wishing to participate should follow the below guidance:
  • Submit your request to participate to no later than October 16, 2016.
  • Your request should include the following information:
    • Name
    • Professional Affiliation (if applicable)
    • 2-3 Sentence Abstract
    • Written Statement (preferably in .pdf format)
  • Commission staff will inform you of your assigned speaking time and additional logistical details no later than October 19, 2016. We cannot accommodate requests for specific timeslots.
Please note, any party may submit a written statement without requesting a speaking slot by following the above guidance, but clearly indicating you are not requesting a speaking slot.

All submitted statements will become part of the Commission record, and will be included in publically available records.

Stakeholders are also encouraged to review and respond to the current Request for Comments, which is open through November 14, 2016.
