For Representatives & Staffers
We originally developed OurGov with the intention of helping NGOs interact with, track, and engage with you, their Representative and staffers.
However, after talking with our customers and a number of representatives, it was made clear that tools we offer (or are in the process of offering) are valuable to you as well. Look below for a few use cases.
Save time, and therefore money, calling around attempting to find the most likely peers to support your bill.
When it comes time to vote, you may find yourself regularly navigating to the Eye on Lobbying site to see which principals have registered in which manner. Now, you can see the principals that have registered on a bill directly on the legislation page:
So much of our communication and work takes place on emails these days. The challenge with email is that it's temporally organized, not topically.
When it comes time to:
- build a recommendation
- or make a voting decision
you may find yourself regularly scrolling through emails to find communication relating to the bill in question.
View results directly alongside the Legislation page
With our bill commenting functionality, you and your team can keep all of your communications organized alongside the bill.
We're also working on a formal tool so that your staffers can provide consistent voting recommendation reports to you. These reports will be sent via email notifications and can be seen alongside bills within OurGov.
