IAC transition reports are out… and we’ll hear from them Tuesday on Federal News Radio 1500 AM

with 2 comments

I mentioned over the weekend that the Industry Advisory Council was slated to post its transition reports today… and they are posted… they aren’t all that easy to find, but… they are posted. There are four of them — all PDFs:

On Tuesday on Federal News Radio 1500 AM’s Daily Debrief with Chris Dorobek and Amy Morris, we’ll be talking to some of the people involved with the reports, including IAC Chairman Leslie Steele [bio in .doc].

They were just posted, so I haven’t read them yet, so… share your thoughts.
