ABSTRACT

Strategies for Identifying Reporting Requirements and Submitted Reporting to Congress [December 10, 2021]   [open pdf - 1MB]

From the Document: "Congress may direct federal and independent agencies, commissions, and the President to prepare and submit required reports to Congress and its committees as a function of its oversight of the executive branch and to obtain information for the purposes of enacting legislation. These reporting requirements may be located in public laws, the 'United States Code,' and committee reports. Reporting requirements may vary widely in aspects such as deadlines, requested content, and congressional entities to which the reports are to be submitted. The forms in which reports are delivered, including the submission of written materials or in-person delivery through briefings or testimonies, also vary. Additionally, the purpose reporting serves varies and may include facilitating oversight, ensuring compliance, and generally informing congressional study and decision-making."
