Oversight and the Stimulus Law

This event is still several weeks away, but with all of the talk about ARRA, government oversight, and transparency, I thought people might be interested in the AABPA April Program Meeting; open to members and non-members.

Oversight and the Stimulus Law

In the months following the enactment of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), the federal government will face a number of challenges. One of these relates to oversight. The law included a number of oversight provisions that cover multiple agencies, programs, and appropriations accounts. Clint Brass will briefly summarize some of the relevant provisions in ARRA and talk about oversight issues in the context of the ongoing economic crisis:

How might the federal government balance speed with prudence?
How might the federal government reconcile trade-offs between goals and values like transparency, accountability, efficiency, effectiveness, and equity?
Over the long-term, how may federal agencies, Congress, and the President better respond to (or better, avoid) crises in the future?

Clint Brass is an Analyst in Government Organization and Management at the Congressional Research Service. His presentation, however, will reflect only his views on this topic and not those of the Library of Congress or the Congressional Research Service.
