This authorization will support convening activities for the Commonwealth Fund's Council of Economic Advisors, as well as a consulting agreement with health law expert Tim Jost, a new advisory group to help review Fund staff address racial bias in survey development, with funds remaining to support external reviews and collaboration as needed. These groups and advisors will meet throughout the upcoming year and will contribute to program evaluation. Additionally, expert reviewers will occasionally be used during the grant proposal process to review proposed methodology or in other areas where we seek external expertise.
