The FCC on Monday (12/11) flipped the switch on an online dashboard designed to provide the public with more information on the agency’s work. Now available at FCC.gov, the resource aims to give consumers better access to reports and graphics on FCC workloads, pending actions, and other accountability matrices—and more easily access Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) materials.
“Since becoming Chairman, I’ve made it a priority to find ways to improve transparency at the FCC,” said Ajit Pai. “We serve the American people. To do that, it’s important to remain accountable to them and give them accurate, regularly-updated information about our work. I’m proud of the efforts my FCC colleagues make every day, and today’s upgrades will help consumers everywhere know more about those efforts. Today’s announcement brings to fruition a proposal I first introduced in 2013. I’m glad we’re finally able to activate this good-government tool.”
The Commission’s new dashboard will also help keep the public informed about the FCC’s workload in areas like pending applications, petitions, complaints, and license renewals. Chairman Pai asked staff to develop the dashboard to make information readily available to the public.

The FCC uses shared federal processing and information resources to meet its FOIA obligations.
“With upgrades to the Commission’s FOIA webpage, the agency is making it easier for consumers to access and navigate search tools for reviewing FCC FOIA responses and filing their own requests for information,” Pai said.
