Former Federal Officials Dorothy Robyn and Adele Morris Propose Spectrum Management Models

CellTowerDorothy Robyn, former commissioner of the General Services Administration‘s public buildings service, has proposed a fee-based model to encourage efficient use of the federal spectrum, FCW reported Tuesday.

Adam Mazmanian writes Robyn believes charging a spectrum fee would generate revenues that government can use to invest in newer radio systems.

Adele Morris, who previously served as Treasury Department official and currently a Brookings Institution fellow, has suggested incentivizing agencies to share or vacate their spectrum, according to FCW.

She also recommended that government assign a federally funded research team or a third-party independent organization to analyze spectrum usage, according to Mazmanian’s article.

Mazmanian reports that Reps. Doris Matsui (D-Calif.) and Brett Guthrie (R-Ky.) introduced a bill that would grant federal spectrum users a portion of auction proceeds for giving up spectrum rights.
