Policy Evaluation

An analysis of the policy evaluation of a process presented in an article about unlicensed wireless usage.

This paper discusses the theory behind public policy analysis. A number of techniques and methods have been used over the years to analyze policies, which begin from a descriptive approach to case studies and develop right up to a quasi-experimental approach. It attempts to analyze one policy and discuss whether the analysis conforms to the standards of public administration educational texts through the analysis of Bob Brewin’s (2001) article FCC delays decision on ‘ultrawide-band’ until February. about unlicensed wireless usage. It demonstrates how the essence of good reporting in any case, is to present both sides of the argument without really analyzing or providing opinions on an issue.
The policy, which will be discussed, is the Federal Communication Commission’s stance on controversial unlicensed wireless called ultra-wide band communications (UWB). The Federal Communication Commission’s (FCC) is delaying its decision to permit the use of a controversial unlicensed wireless called ultra-wide band communications (UWB). A number of companies such as Sony and Intel have encouraged the use of such devices but the aviation and communication industries seem to reject the idea. This difference of opinion is the cause of the delay in creating an effective policy.
