New FCC Office of Economics and Analytics Formed
Tuesday, January 30, 2018 | Comments

The FCC voted to create an FCC Office of Economics and Analytics. This new unit will help ensure that economic analysis is incorporated as part of the agency’s regular operations.

The new office will use existing staff resources to gather FCC economists, attorneys and data professionals who work on economic analysis, data policy and management, and research into one office. In support of and in coordination with other FCC bureaus and offices, this new office will provide economic analysis for rulemakings, transactions, adjudications and other commission actions.

The office will manage the FCC’s auctions program and manage significant FCC data collections such as Form 477. It will develop policies and strategies to manage the FCC’s data resources and establish best practices for use throughout the agency. In addition, it will conduct long-term research on ways to improve the FCC’s policies and processes.

The new office will include four divisions: economic analysis, industry analysis, auctions and data. The FCC will eliminate the current Office of Strategic Planning and Policy Analysis and incorporate that team and other bureau and office staff into the new office.
