New appointments to Recovery Independent Advisory Panel (3-10-10)
As part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), a Recovery Independent Advisory Panel was created to “make recommendations to the Recovery Accountability and transparency Board as requested on actions that the … Board could take to prevent fraud, waste, and abuse relating to covered funds,” according to the Board’s guidelines. On March 5, 2010, the President announced his intent to make several new appointments to the panel. Appointments include Edward Tufte, professor emeritus of political science, statistics, and computer science at Yale University, who is well known for his work on data visualization. Other appointments include:
- Steven Koch, vice chairman and co-chairman of Credit Suisse’s Mergers and Acquisition Group;
- Chris Sale, who provides guidance on microfinance, housing finance, and small to medium enterprise lending programs at CHF International; and
- Malcolm K. Sparrow, professor of the practice of public management at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government.
