Title: Use of TARP Funds and Compliance with Executive Compensation Issues.
Description: The Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 (“Act”), Public Law 110-343, established the Troubled Asset Relief Program (“TARP”) and created the Office of the Special Inspector General for the Troubled Asset Relief Program (“SIGTARP”). SIGTARP is responsible for coordinating and conducting audits and investigations of any program established by the Secretary of the Treasury under the Act. One of SIGTARP's primary areas of focus has been ensuring, to the fullest extent possible, transparency in the operation of TARP. Increasingly, members of the Congress, the press, and the public are expressing frustration and raising questions about: (1) The lack of information about how TARP recipients are using or plan to use funding provided by the Federal government under the various TARP programs; and (2) insufficient transparency regarding efforts to restrain excessive executive compensation. The questionnaire is designed to address these questions.
Respondents: Businesses and other for-profit institutions.
Estimated Total Reporting Burden: 200 hours.
