Harvard Negotiation & Mediation Clinical Program Final Report to the Vermont Public Utility Commission
05 December 2017
In 2016, Vermont’s Act 174 Working Group asked the Vermont Public Utility Commission (PUC) to find ways to incorporate facilitation and mediation into its processes in order to promote increased ease of public participation. The PUC in turn asked the Harvard Negotiation & Mediation Clinical Program (HNMCP) to recommend an Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) system that could be used in PUC cases. This report presents the HNMCP's findings and recommendations.
