FCC Opens New Office With Economics, Analytics Focus; Ajit Pai Quoted

The Federal Communications Commission established a new office to apply economic and data analysis on policy formation activities.

The agency said Tuesday, its new Office of Economics and Analytics will consist of commission economists, as well as former staff of the now-defunct Office of Strategic Planning and Policy Analysis, OEA’s predecessor. OEA will feature four divisions to focus on economic analysis, industry analysis, auctions and data. Ajit Pai, FCC commissioner, proposed the new office in April 2017.

“This will be a single office to bring together the great economic and data work already being done by FCC staff,” said Pai.
