EX PARTE MEETINGS WITH THE TECHNOLOGY TRANSITIONS POLICY TASK FORCE
GN Docket No. 13-5As the Technology Transitions Policy Task Force moves forward in accordance with Chairman
Tom Wheeler’s blog post, The IP Transition: Starting Now, https://www.fcc.gov/blog/ip-transition-
starting-now, we wish to reiterate the ways in which interested parties can provide input into the work of
the Task Force.
Parties requesting meetings with the Task Force should submit requests to
TechTaskForce@fcc.gov. Any such requests should specify the purpose of the meeting, the issues that
the party intends to discuss (including identifying any pending proceedings that may be discussed), and
the meeting attendees.
We remind parties that the Commission treats the work of the Technology Transitions Policy
Task Force (including both oral meetings and written submissions) as a “permit-but-disclose” proceeding,
in which ex parte presentations to Commission decision-making personnel are permissible but subject to
certain disclosure requirements in accordance with the Commission’s ex parte rules.1
Presentations to the Technology Transitions Policy Task Force as well as any other written
submissions should be filed in GN Docket No. 13-5 as well as any other applicable docket, as appropriate.
