Notice on letters of nomination to fill vacancy.
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) established the Health Information Technology Policy Committee (Health IT Policy Committee) and gave the Comptroller General responsibility for appointing 13 of its 20 members. ARRA requires that 3 members be advocates for patients or consumers. Due to a vacancy on the Committee, GAO is accepting nominations of individuals to fill one of these three positions. For this appointment I am announcing the following: Letters of nomination and resumes should be submitted between May 5 and 25, 2012 to ensure adequate opportunity for review and consideration of nominees.
