Title: Analyzing USDA Forest Service Appeals: Phase I, the Database
Author: * Cortner, H.J. , * Teich, G.M.R., Vaughn, J.
Abstract: A full accounting of the current administrative appeals process would begin with some basic questions: who, what, where, and when. The database we have compiled begins to answer some of these questions, especially 1) who files appeals, 2) what types of projects are appealed, 3) where the most appeals are filed, and 4) when most appeals are decided. It is important to note that there really was no easy way to answer these questions prior to construction of this database.
