Phoenix, AZ Supporter and Friend Luncheon

Mercatus Center supporters and friends are invited to an invitation only, special event in Phoenix, AZ, a lunch featuring the Honorable Maurice McTigue.


Thursday, January 21, 2010

Phoenix, AZ

2575 East Camelback Road

Noon to 1:30 PM


In light of the current economic and political climate, Maurice will discuss the Mercatus Center’s Government Accountability Project and how it works to improve the funding and policy decisions of the U.S. Government by applying the same ideas of “accountability in government” that worked in New Zealand.


About the speaker:

As director of the Government Accountability Project at Mercatus, Maurice McTigue is sharing the lessons of his practical experience with policy makers in the United States.  He works with officials in the Administration, members of Congress, officials from over 23 federal agencies and state governments on applying the principles of transparency and accountability in the public sector.  In 2003, he was appointed to the Office of Personnel Management Senior Review Committee, formed to make recommendations for new Human Resources systems at the then newly created Department of Homeland Security.  Mr. McTigue has provided extensive strategic-level advice to the Office of Management and Budget on a wide range of management issues, including the development of a results-based program assessment tool.  He frequently speaks at conferences on performance issues and testifies before congressional committees on issues of government reform.
