This report, prepared for Technology Center 2800 (TC2800), a part of the United States Patent and Trademark Office, provides analysis and recommendations to help TC2800 improve the procedural processing of patent applications. Interviews conducted with the staff of TC2800 provided insight into the application process currently in place. Analysis of these interviews and other collected data led to recommendations of procedural improvements that streamline the process and reduce the number of recurring errors.
