    It is used in its jargonesque intent to describe any sort of comments or advice or criticism and implies without ever really saying it openly, that the opinions of those people will be sought.  In actual fact, they may never actually seek it because they have not said definitively that the advice will be requested, only that "input" (some sort of vague idea of learning how the people feel) will be used to some extent.

    It is a cop-out term, in actual reality.  It is a way to pretend something that you may actually have absolutely no intention of pursuing.  But it does sound great, doesn't it?
