For Staffers Looking to Use the Complimentary Platform
What is the "Complimentary Platform"?
For many years, the House CAO (Chief Administrative Officer) has partnered with CQ to provide access to a select number of tools in CQ Federal to help staffers do their jobs. Historically, staffers had access to only a small amount of CQ's tools, but as of summer 2020, those features have expanded significantly to help staffers better track news and legislation.
