Prof. Hickman Named Special Adviser to OIRA

April 18, 2018

Professor Kristin Hickman has been tapped to serve as special adviser to the Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), housed within the Office of Management and Budget at the White House. 

OIRA is the federal government’s central authority for the review of executive branch regulations, approval of government information collections, establishment of government statistical practices, and coordination of federal privacy policy.

Recently, the Department of the Treasury and OIRA crafted a new Memorandum of Agreement providing for OIRA review, and thus more transparency and accountability, for tax-based regulatory actions. Hickman, a leading national authority in tax policy and administrative law, will join OIRA’s in-house team to help implement the Memorandum of Agreement and expedite OIRA review of tax-based regulations.
