David Lipscomb from the Center for Plain Language will discuss the documents they’ll review and the criteria they’ll use for grading in the upcoming Federal Plain Language Report Card. This meeting is also a chance for interested feds to ask questions and offer feedback on how to make the annual report card process more helpful in the coming years.
The Plain Language Action and Information Network (PLAIN) is a community of federal employees dedicated to the idea that citizens deserve clear communications from government. We believe that using plain language saves federal agencies time and money and provides better service to the American public.
