United States Elected Officials Database

We all recognize that Elected Officials are a crucial stakeholder group. Whether you need to obtain permits, comply with regulations, secure public funding, or advocate for a cause, elected officials can have a significant impact on your project. You may need to engage with these influential stakeholders before planning a project in their jurisdiction, or contact them in case of an emergency involving one of your assets.


The new Elected Officials Database can help you identify, engage, and build stronger relationships with government officials and drive positive outcomes for your organization. 



Main advantages

  • Provides up to date information on federal, state and local US Elected Officials without the need of manually entering information - updated monthly.
  • Client specific information depending on the characteristics of each project or asset and its geographical coverage.
  • All Elected officials records are clearly identified.
  • Seemless integration with other Borealis features such as:
    • Distribution lists and Smart Communications
    • Stakeholder Assessment
    • Engagement Plans
    • Land Management
    • Analytics

The new Elected Officials Database is a paid add-on. If you are interested in please contact your account director to discuss the costs and details of the setup process.

Land Management Engagement Plans

The intricacies of land management processes for projects with a large geographical footprint can often be a daunting experience. The multiplicity of stakeholders, from landowners, to local, regional and state authorities, and the continuous engagement process required to manage their expectations, keep them informed and ensure all commitments made are fulfilled can easily get out of hand if not properly managed.


The new Engagement Plan feature for the Land Management Module allows you to leverage the geographic information to easily identify the relevant stakeholders you need to engage with based on specific parcels or stakeholder group.


It provides new and innovative features to select the required land elements and automatically link the related titleholders to you engagement plan, such as:

  • A new feature that allows you to directly draw points, lines or polygons.
  • The possibility to copy and paste a list of coordinates to generate a point, line or polygon; or
  • The option to choose one or more existing Company Assets.
