Watchdogs, Investigations, Evaluations: Using Art and Science to Improve Government

Wednesday, July 16, 2014
9:00–11:00 a.m. 
Urban Institute
2100 M Street, NW, 5th floor
Washington, D.C. 20037

Professor Dan Feldman (Public Management, John Jay College) , along with his co-author, lead a discussion/presentation on his book, The Art of the Watchdog: Fighting Fraud, Waste, Abuse, Corruption in Government, at the Urban Institute in D.C.

About the book:
In The Art of the Watchdog, Daniel L. Feldman and David R. Eichenthal draw on their own work in federal, state, and local government oversight over the past forty years. They explore the tools and techniques needed to put the spotlight on those who cheat and steal from the public or who squander valuable taxpayer dollars through waste and inefficiency. At the same time, Feldman and Eichenthal outline what they see as the good and the bad of current oversight efforts based on case studies from across the nation. Ultimately their goal is to ensure that the "art of the watchdog" does not become a lost one and to improve the quality and integrity of government and strengthen democracy.
