The FCC was an active presence at the International Wireless Communication Expo convention this past week in the Las Vegas Convention Center.  The convention was scheduled from March 10 – 12 and the FCC hosted a booth on the convention floor and held a Brainstorming Session that was open to all attendees and exhibitors.

The Brainstorming Session was to receive ideas about how to improve the current licensing systems across the FCC Bureaus, and the ideas were flowing.  The suggestions crossed multiple systems and numerous licensing related functions, including improvements to access to data through search and data extract enhancements. This Brainstorming Session was only one of many brainstorming sessions that have been held for multiple industry organizations, and represents just one aspect of the increased transparency that the FCC is striving for in its outreach efforts.  The project to consolidate the licensing systems will also include many future interaction activities for the users to provide their input on how the government can improve their services and communication.

We look forward to continuing to work in cooperation with the public to improve how they conduct business with the FCC!
