Documents on Payments to 9/11 Commissioners

Published by 911DocumentArchive
Various documents about payments to 9/11 Commissioners for their work on the commission.

(1) Three copies of an April 17, 2003, memo from the commission's counsel Daniel Marcus about guidelines for payments of daily fees to commissioners.

(2) Another similar memo from Marcus.

(3) Various memos in which the commissioners claim compensation for time spent working for the commission. The commissioners who make such claims are Tim Roemer, Lee Hamilton, Slade Gorton, Bob Kerrey and Richard Ben-Veniste. Hamilton, the vice chairman, appears to be claiming the most and often does not specify what he has done on a given day to deserve compensation.

Subject:
compensation guidelines
In
light of our discussion at the April 10 meeting and further consideration, Ipropose
the
following revised
guidelinesfor per
diem
compensationof
Commissioners:
1.
Unless
you opt out of
compensation
entirely
(notify Tracy Shycoff
if you
wishto doso),you will automatically be compensated for each day on which youattend a formal Commission meeting or hearing (public or
non-public).
Paymentswill be made into your direct-deposit account.
2.
With the approval of the Chair or Vice Chair, you may also be paid for each
day
(either a full day or an aggregation of time on more than one day totaling
eight
hours) in which you engage in substantial activities pursuant to yourresponsibilities as a
Commissioner.
"Substantial activities" include
attending
briefings of Commissioners by Government officials or experts invitedby
the
staff;
reviewing
the
Joint
Inquiry report
or
classified materials
at the
offices
of the Commission or the Joint Inquiry; meetings with outside groups on
the
workof theCommission; reviewingandcommentingon thedraft Reportof theCommission;
and
necessary preparation
for
Commission activities such
as
participation in
interviews.
Time spent on routine activities such as general
background
reading, phone calls, and inquiries to the staff does NOT qualify as
time
spent
on
"substantial activities" eligible
for
compensation.
(I
recognize
that
there may be some significant reading that you may deem essential to theperformanceof your duties as a Commissioner; if so, you may include such time
in
a
request
for
reimbursement.)
3.
Requestsfor perdiem compensationfor"substantial activities" under
paragraph
2 should include a description of the work done for each time periodcovered
by the
request.
You can
provide this
decription
in any
format
you
choose;
Tracy can provide you with a suggested form if you wish. Payments of
approved
requests for compensation will be made into your direct-deposit
account.
4.
Bear
in mind that unless Congress amends out statute to clarify the SGE
status
of Commissioners (and such an amendment was NOT included in the recentlypassedIraq War supplemental appropriation
bill),
your SGE status is predicated
on
the prediction that, over the course of a year, you will not spend more than
130
days (or parts of days) on Commission business, and that for this purpose
days
or parts of days are counted regardless of whether you are compensated for
such
services. Incidental, sporadic work is less likely to be counted if you
are
notcompensatedfor it.

Subj:
Revised Compensation Guidelines
In
light
of our
discussion
at the
April
10
meeting
and
further
consideration,
I
propose
the
following
revised guidelines
for per
diem compensation
of
Commissioners:
1.
Unless
you opt out of
compensation entirely
(notify
Tracy
Shycoff
if you
wish
to doso), you
will automatically
be
compensated
for
each
day on
which
you
attend
a
formal
Commission meeting or hearing (public or non-public). Payments will be made into yourdirect-deposit account.2. With
the
approval
of the
Chair
or
ViceChair,
you may
also
be
paid
for
each
day
(either
a
full
day or an
aggregation
of
time
on
more than
one day
totaling eight hours)
in
which
you
engage
in
substantial activities pursuant
to
your responsibilities
as a
Commissioner. "Substantial activities" include attending briefings
of
Commissioners
by
Government officialsor
experts
invitedby the
staff;
reviewingtheJoint Inquiry reportor
classified
materials
at the
offices
of the
Commission
or the
Joint Inquiry; meetings with
outside
groups
on the
work
of the
Commission; reviewing
and
commenting
on the
draft
Report
of the
Commission;
and
necessary preparation
for
Commission activities such
as
participation in interviews. Time spent on routine activities such as general background
reading,
phone calls,
and
inquiries
to the
staff
does
NOT
qualify
as
time spent
on"substantial
activities" eligible
for
compensation.
(I
recognize that there
may be
some
significant
reading that
you may
deem essential
to the
performance
ofyour
duties
as a
Commissioner;
if so, you may
include such time
in a
request
for relfnbursemeBl3.
Requests
for per
diem compensation
for
"substantial activities" under paragraph
2should
include
a
description
of the
work done
for
each time period covered
by therequest. You can
provide this description
in any
format
you
choose; Tracy
can
provide
you
with
a
suggested
form
if you
wish. Payments
of
approved requests
for
compensation
will
be
made into your direct-deposit account.
4.

in
mind that unless Congress amends oufstatute
to
clarify
the SGE
status
of
Commissioners (and such
an
amendment
was NOT
included
in the
recently passed Iraq
War

SGE

on the
prediction
that,

the
course
of a

you
will
not
spend more than
130
days
