POLICY MONITORING & ANALYSIS

Policy monitoring and analysis is at the core of everything we do. Whether building political visibility, lobbying against proposed regulations, or promoting a new piece of legislation, it all begins with the ability to collect good information and put it in context. The lobbyists at Public Strategies are recognized authorities in a range of policy areas, including health, transportation, technology, education, and finance, and they are supported by dedicated research staff who can dig deep and distill.

Policy Monitoring.
Public Strategies monitors statutory and regulatory activity on the state and federal level on a daily basis, using congressional and agency publications, proprietary information technology, social media trackers, and subscription news services. Our team members often fact check to independently verify reports and are a constant presence at congressional hearings, meetings, and policy events.

Policy Analysis.
Clients don’t just need to know what happened; they need to know why it matters. A critical aspect of our work is providing clients with regular analytics that put events in context and explain their significance. Our analyses help clients anticipate issues and opportunities and devise constructive responses to current developments.

Policy Materials.
In addition to periodic internal reports, our lobbyists are adept at producing a variety of external policy-related materials. We help clients prepare white papers, legislative proposals, draft amendments, comments, media talking points, congressional testimony, and responses to governmental requests for information.
