The FCC has named five employees as recipients of the third annual commission "Excellence in Economic Analysis" awards. The award winners are: Peter Alexander, Jay Atkinson, Christopher Barnekov, Kiran Duwadi, and Andrew Wise. Atkinson and Barnekov are recognized for joint work, as are Duwadi and Wise.
The awards recognize outstanding contributions to economic analysis at the commission, based on the impact of the contribution on agency policy and/or its significance for the general base of knowledge in economics or public policy analysis.
The Excellence in Economic Analysis awards are a key part of Chairman Michael Powell's Excellence in Economic Analysis initiative, which also includes expanding staff training opportunities and additional resources for software and other research materials. Up to five awards are given annually and all agency staff are eligible for nomination.
