Evaluating the September 11th Fund: Adminstrator looks back

Article in the NY Times r eporting on Ken Fineberg’s evaluation of his team’s performance in running the September 11th Fund, the federal program to compensate the eligible relatives of Sept. 11 Appointed in 2001 to administer the fund, Fineberg pulled together a small team. got an office, and started developing programs. By the program’s end in December 2003, says the Times, “97 percent of all eligible families have agreed not to sue the airlines, government agencies or other entities and have filed death claims with his program.”
I’m not in a postion to judge how well this fund ran, or if it could have run better, but this seems like an interesting, and relatively measured story.
