Frequently Asked Questions

 

 

  • What is Argive’s mission?

    • Argive strives to improve transparency and accountability in regulatory policy. We partner with government and NGOs to supply free technical resources that collect grassroots public feedback on regulation.

  • Why is public feedback on regulation important?

    • Although thousands of regulations at the federal, state, and local level exist, the collection of broad public input is often absent from traditional rulemaking processes. Encouraging proactive citizen participation helps policymakers make informed regulatory policy decisions that reflect constituent needs.

  • Who can submit feedback?

    • We are always accepting regulatory feedback, though we internally validate submissions for accuracy. Tell us about a regulation affecting you with our Review a Rule form.

  • Who uses your data?

    • In order to cultivate a transparent regulatory culture, all collected data is made free and publicly available. Anyone may download feedback data, though we request to be cited in all resulting work.

  • How does your privacy policy work?

    • You may choose to make your feedback anonymous or public in our regulatory database. Click here for examples of how feedback appears in the database. For more information, please review our Privacy Policy.
