Re: Release of the Critical Information Needs Research Design by the FCC’s Office of Communications
Business Opportunities

The FCC has a duty to make sure that the industries it regulates serve the needs of the American public no
matter where they live or what financial resources they have. The research design we announce today is
an important next step in understanding what those needs are, how Americans obtain the information
critical to their daily lives in a dynamic technological environment, and what barriers exist in our media
ecologies to providing and accessing this information.
