Heralding the Arrival of the Enhanced Version of the KM Dodd-Frank Tracker
When President Obama signed the voluminous and far-reaching Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act into law last summer, there must have been an audible gulp from the pencil-pushers working at federal agencies. After all, they would be charged with the Herculean task of taking all 2,223 pages of the new law and administering it at the regulatory level.
Of course, the machinery of the federal bureaucratic process is complicated enough under ordinary circumstances. But implementing Dodd-Frank requires flipping that machine into overdrive. The historic law mandates a tidal wave of regulatory changes from nearly 20 federal agencies.
As those rulemakers continue to churn out official releases on Dodd-Frank, it is up to the rest of us to keep track of the process, and to make sense of how those changes affect our work. Knowledge Mosaic Inc. was one of the first to tackle this challenge, introducing its KM Dodd-Frank Tracker to the knowledgemosaic service last fall. Now, with the launch of an enhanced version of the Dodd-Frank Tracker and an accompanying alerting system, Knowledge Mosaic continues its mission of organizing chaotic data into an intuitive and useful interface.
With alerting across all relevant rulemaking bodies, supplemented by weekly analysis, law firm memo commentary, agency materials, disclosure documents, and news archives—all available with one login—Knowledge Mosaic has further cemented its reputation as an indispensable information provider to a broad range of organizations.
Knowledge Mosaic founder and president Peter Schwartz says:
We were excited by the challenge this legislation posed and I’m impressed by our response to it. I think it says a lot about what we do and our ability to serve the people who count on us. This tool has provided a framework for us to apply to other similarly complex government initiatives.
Since the Dodd-Frank Bill was signed into law on July 21, 2010, Knowledge Mosaic has identified over 250 discrete rulemaking items from federal agencies and bureaus to go with over 1,000 law firm memos the company has collected on the topic. The KM Dodd-Frank Tracker allows users to customize daily alerts for changes relevant to their work; sort rulemaking by agency, date, topic, or type; review effective date and other crucial information at a glance; and organize all rulemaking by date.
