Regulatory Performance Initiative: Pre-Proposals Due July 1, 2013

Are you an expert in administrative law or regulatory policy seeking support for your work?  If so, this may be an opportunity for you!

Resources for the Future (RFF) has announced that it is seeking proposals to conduct retrospective studies of regulatory performance as a component of its Regulatory Performance Initiative.  RFF is particularly seeking analysis of regulations issued by the Environmental Protection Agency, Food and Drug Administration, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Nuclear Regulatory Commission, and Occupational Health and Safety Administration.  Researchers interested in studying other federal agencies' regulations should contact RFF before submitting an application.  Anyone with "deonstrative expertise in the relevant area of study" is eligible to apply.

$150,000 is currently available to support up to four grants.  Pre-proposals are due July 1, 2013.  Further information about the project and application process are available at www.rff.org/RPI.
