CQ Press's Political Contact Suite Goes Mobile!

Los Angeles, London, New Delhi, Singapore and Washington DC (June 16, 2009) — CQ Press's Political Contact Suite has gone mobile. The CQ Press Congressional Staff Directory is now accessible on BlackBerry and iPhone, making its wealth of information available everywhere. Mobile access to the CQ Press Federal Staff Directory and Judicial Staff Directory will also be possible soon.

The CQ Press Political Contact Suite is an integrated online resource comprising eight authoritative directories containing nearly 170,000 contacts, profiles, and biographies for the members and staff of Congress, the federal government, and the judiciary, as well as non-governmental organizations. The Suite is cross-searchable with periodicals and databases such as CQ Weekly and CQ Almanac, and provides crucial data from CQ Press’s renowned directories:

  • Congressional Staff Directory
  • Federal Staff Directory
  • Judicial Staff Directory
  • Homeland Security Staff Directory
  • Media Contact Directory
  • Washington Information Directory
  • World PowerBase
  • Almanac of Federal PACs.

The exclusive, in-depth biographies and profiles in the CQ Press Political Contact Suite are not offered anywhere else. With convenient, enhanced search functionalities, this dynamic database provides reliable answers to a variety of questions: Who are President Obama’s appointees and staffers? Where did they previously work? Which members of Congress serve on which committees? Who makes significant campaign contributions? Who has been appointed to judicial seats? And, perhaps the most important question of all: How can I reach them?

Mobile access to the Political Contact Suite answers these questions on-the-go. With daily updates and a user-friendly interface, the Suite offers fast and easy access to the vital information that lobbyists, government professionals, and corporate libraries need. New list-building and downloading capabilities will soon allow users to arrange contact information into manageable spreadsheets with a few mouse clicks.
