The Commission is evaluating its Internet web site in an effort to make it easier and faster for its users to retrieve information. Although the FCC's website was recently cited as one of the best in the government, the Commission is always interested in upgrading and improving it.

A key part of the assessment process is to ascertain what the public expects from the agency's website and whether the site is meeting those expectations. Toward this end, the FCC invites interested parties who use the website to submit comments, including their views about improvements that would make retrieval of information faster and easier. Among those from whom the FCC would like to hear are members of industry, consumer and public interest groups, state and local regulatory groups, and professional associations.

This evaluation does not address any of the FCC's electronic filing systems but rather is limited to the FCC website, www.fcc.gov, and associated webpages.

Comments should address, among other things, usability, navigability, format, content, interactivity and ease of contacting the Commission.

Please submit all comments by November 10 to webeval@fcc.gov.

For more information, contact Dave Kitzmiller at (202) 418-0507.
