The Independent Federal Agencies Leadership Tracker monitors appointments to agency leadership positions through the confirmation process and beyond. The initiative is part of the Revolving Door Project’s effort to even the playing field by empowering ordinary people with information previously hoarded by special interest groups.

Note: Politically-balanced boards prohibit more than a certain number of members/commissioners from being members of the President’s political party. In most cases, nominees are either Republicans or Democrats, making it simple to predict the political affiliations of future nominees for vacancies on these boards. In rare instances, however, presidents may nominate an Independent to fill a vacancy, creating uncertainty about the political affiliations of future nominees. For the sake of simplicity, the Monitor treats an Independent nominee as a member of the party with whom the nomination originated – either that of the President or the Senate Minority leader to whom the President traditionally looks for names to fill the minority party spots on independent agency boards.
