Full Text of JOE Listing:
EBSA’s Chief Economist and Director of the Office of Research and Analysis (ORA) reports directly to EBSA’s Deputy Assistant Secretary for Program Operations and performs four core functions: (1) economic analysis in support of regulatory policy development; (2) economic research into employee benefits policy issues; (3) statistical and analytical support to EBSA’s enforcement and other programs; and (4) actuarial support to EBSA’s offices and programs. The office also supports the Secretary in their duties as Chair of the Board of the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation and Trustee for the Social Security and Medicare Trust Funds and provides economic support for EBSA’s participation in relevant international forums. ORA is headed by EBSA's Director of Research and Analysis, who also serves as EBSA's Chief Economist. Its staff consists of professional economists and EBSA's Chief Actuary.
ORA is organized into two divisions: the Division of Regulatory Policy Analysis participates in the development and promulgation of all EBSA rules, assessing rules' economic impacts pursuant to applicable OMB and Congressional mandates; and the Division of Economic Research and Analysis conducts and disseminates economic research calibrated to advance EBSA's mission and expand economic knowledge related to employee benefits.
