National Ombudsman Coordination (5 U.S.C. § 657)
OCBO is the FCC’s liaison to the SBA’s Office of the National Ombudsman.
OCBO coordinates enforcement matters with EB.
During FY 2003, we represented the FCC in three Ombudsman programs by:
Handling three Ombudsman-forwarded comments concerning
FCC enforcement actions.
Making presentations at Ombudsman public hearings in Montpelier,
Vermont, and Cedar Rapids, Iowa (broadcast statewide).
Submitting letters and memos to assist the Ombudsman with its annual
Report to Congress, which “grades” agencies on their performance.
