Regroup and Reform: Ideas for a more responsive and effective European Union  Report of the CEPS Task Force  CEPS Task Force Report, 17 February 2017

Regroup and Reform: Ideas for a more responsive and effective European Union. Report of the CEPS Task Force. CEPS Task Force Report, 17 February 2017

report have already been taken: there is a euro area Fiscal Board (which advises the Commission on fiscal matters), and national productivity boards (to monitor the competitiveness performance and policies in each member state) are being created. However, the nature of these bodies is purely consultative and, while useful, these two steps are unlikely to have a significant impact on the true deepening of the EMU. In order to render the EMU governance framework and the EU’s economic and financial performance more resilient and effective, this Task Force recommends stronger fiscal cooperation among euro countries. Acknowledging that the euro area countries possess very diverse tax-raising and public-spending cultures, which translate into significant differences in terms of tolerance towards deficits and resistance to share fiscal responsibilities, this Task Force nevertheless considers that stronger centralised fiscal policies are necessary to strengthen the economic governance framework.

NOT ALONE. The First Report of the White House Task Force to Protect Students From Sexual Assault

NOT ALONE. The First Report of the White House Task Force to Protect Students From Sexual Assault

The action steps and recommendations highlighted in this report are the initial phase of an ongoing plan. The Task Force is mindful, for instance, of the continuing challenges schools face in meeting Title IX and Clery Act requirements. We will continue to work toward solutions, clarity, and better coordination. We will also review the various laws and regulations that address sexual violence for possible regulatory or statutory improvements, and seek new resources to enhance enforcement. Also, campus law enforcement officials have special expertise – and they should be tapped to play a more central role. We will also consider how our recommendations apply to public elementary and secondary schools – and what more we can do to help there.

Pathways to Low Carbon Transport in the EU – From Possibility to Reality. Report of the CEPS Task Force on transport and climate change. CEPS Task Force Report, June 2013

Pathways to Low Carbon Transport in the EU – From Possibility to Reality. Report of the CEPS Task Force on transport and climate change. CEPS Task Force Report, June 2013

he starting point of this CEPS Task Force was to identify measures that will need to be taken to meet the target put forward by the European Commission’s Transport White Paper i.e. to achieve a 60% greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction in the transport sector in 2050 compared to 1990 levels. Politically, this target has been discussed as the EU’s contribution to address climate change in a context of worldwide cooperation. Chapter 2 concerns the past successes and future challenges in the fields of transport and environment, while chapters 3 and 4 consider the main policies. While the analysis is essentially qualitative, Chapter 5 provides two illustrative pathways for achieving the European Commission’s target, based on broad estimates about the possible contribution of different measures. This chapter also details a series of policy measures that should be taken in the very short term to accelerate progress towards achieving the required emissions reduction. It should be noted that the report focuses on the EU and does not take into account the implications of developments in international climate change negotiations. The report has identified the following key findings:

Report and Recommendations of the Task Force on the Physical Sciences

Report and Recommendations of the Task Force on the Physical Sciences

The authors conclude that these findings are in line with the earlier NCCA longitudinal study and also point out that there has been little improvement in performance in the physical sciences in relative terms in the last six years (in spite of improved mean grades in absolute terms). Questions have been asked about whether this type of comparison between subjects is defensible (and some of these concerns are articulated within the ERC report to the Task Force). However, regardless of the theoretical rationale underlying such comparisons, it remains the case that students, teachers and parents make them on a frequent basis. As a research report completed on behalf of the School Curriculum and Assessment Authority (UK) puts it: "whether or not it makes sense to compare grades across subjects, it is common practice to do so" (Fitz-Gibbon & Vincent 1994). Indeed the operation of the CAO system itself is based upon the rationale that subject grades are not just comparable but completely equivalent.

Objectives, Budgets, Thresholds, and Opportunity Costs—A Health Economics Approach: An ISPOR Special Task Force Report [4]

Objectives, Budgets, Thresholds, and Opportunity Costs—A Health Economics Approach: An ISPOR Special Task Force Report [4]

The fourth paper of our Special Task Force (STF) report focuses on a health plan or payer s technology adoption or reimbursement decision, given the array of technologies, based on their different values and costs. We discuss the role of budgets, thresholds, opportunity costs, and affordability in making decisions. First we discuss the use of budgets and thresholds in private and public health plans, their interdependence and connection to opportunity cost. Essentially, each payer should adopt a decision rule about what is good value for money given their budget; consistent use of a cost-per-QALY threshold will assure the maximum health gain for the budget. In the US, different public and private insurance programs could use different

Administrative Records   Diversity Blueprints Task Force Final Report

Administrative Records Diversity Blueprints Task Force Final Report

This vision of diversity provides the foundation for this final report of the Diversity Blueprints Task Force. Diversity Blueprints was established December 13, 2006, by President Mary Sue Coleman, in order to maintain University of Michigan's status as one of the nation's premier educational institutions while adhering to changes resulting from the passage of Proposal 2 in November, 2006. Proposal 2 amended the Michigan State Constitution to ban public institutions from discriminating against or giving preferential treatment to groups or individuals based on their race, gender, color, ethnicity, or national origin. In response, the University of Michigan changed its admissions and financial aid processes so that race and gender no longer are used in the decision-making process. The amendment contains an exception for any actions that are mandated by federal law or that are necessary in order for an institution to receive federal funding. The passage of Proposal 2 therefore does not alter employment practices mandated by various federal laws including Executive Order 11246, the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, and the Americans with Disabilities Act, nor does it alter Michigan's Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act which prohibits a wide array of discrimination extending far beyond issues of race and gender.

Reforming the Market Design of EU Electricity Markets: Addressing the Challenges of a Low Carbon Power Sector  CEPS Task Force Report, 27 July 2015

Reforming the Market Design of EU Electricity Markets: Addressing the Challenges of a Low-Carbon Power Sector. CEPS Task Force Report, 27 July 2015

There are two side effects of using dedicated support policies. First, these reduce the demand for electricity generated from conventional sources. Second, there is more fluctuation of demand for electricity from conventional sources, because renewable generation depends to some extent on weather conditions. Decreasing hours of operation of conventional power plants create a need for a different mix of conventional generation technologies, as these do not just differ in their variable production costs but also in their fixed and investment costs. So-called ‘base-load’ capacity is used to cover the minimum continuous level of electricity demand, as it has relatively low variable but high fixed and investment costs. Consequently, when hours of operation diminish, some base-load would be expected to be replaced with capacity that has lower fixed costs (so-called 'mid-merit' and ‘peak-load' capacity).

IBC Comments on the Ontario Automobile Insurance Anti-Fraud Task Force Steering Committee Status Update Report

As stated above, the regulatory colleges and professional organizations need to take a larger role in fighting fraud. These organizations should be mandated and legislated to be involved in the process of working with tribunals and licensing bodies to ensure the professional standards of their members are maintained. Presently regulated health professional colleges have often shied away from taking complaints from insurance companies or organizations on the basis of their expressed concerns over privacy issues and lack of resources. A more comprehensive dialogue with the colleges is required to ensure that these concerns are dealt with and the fight against fraud is not hampered because of a lack of involvement by these associations.

Finally, a word on documentation. As noted above, the first step is to assure that the liquidity provider can take a pledge over collateral assigned by the bank-in-resolution to the liquidity provider. As a practical matter, this has to be established well before the bank enters resolution. Ideally, the authorities should also indicate the terms of a draft framework agreement under which liquidity could be provided to the bank in resolution, if a decision were made to provide the facility. This would include covenants on the bank-in-resolution, such as: i) a requirement that any proceeds from the sale of assets should go towards paying down the facility; ii) a prohibition on paying any dividends or making any distributions to the holders of proceeds notes (see above) until such time as the liquidity facility has been fully repaid with interest; and iii) a prohibition on the bank’s pledging unencumbered assets as collateral to third parties without a corresponding reduction in the outstanding liquidity facility or a waiver from the provider of the liquidity facility.

INNOVATIVE LEARNING MODELS NASFAA TASK FORCE REPORT

INNOVATIVE LEARNING MODELS NASFAA TASK FORCE REPORT

Under current statutory provisions, an eligible student can only receive one Scheduled Award of Federal Pell Grant funds during an award year. This time-based limitation discourages needy students from accelerating completion of their programs. While there has been some discussion of reinstating provisions which would allow for more than one Scheduled Awards within one award year, it is unclear if the funding will be available for this option to be feasible.

Substance Abuse Treatment Task Force Final Report

Key Statement: The Task Force recognizes the significant role that a management information system will play in facilitating information sharing across criminal justice entities and between criminal justice entities and treatment providers. Given this critical role, however, this task was too large for the Task Force to adequately address within current time constraints. It is recommended that more time and resources be allocated to this task once model systems have been adopted.

Implementation of crowding solutions from the American College of Emergency Physicians Task Force Report on Boarding

Implementation of crowding solutions from the American College of Emergency Physicians Task Force Report on Boarding

We classified ED location as urban and rural (adjacent to urban or not adjacent to urban) using the county-based 2003 Urban Influence Codes (www.usda.gov). EDs were categorized by their self-reported capacity status (under capacity, good balance, at capacity, and over capacity). This categorization of capacity has been used in prior national ED studies [6]. Other ED characteristics included in the survey were the average number of ED patients seen per hour (calculated from annual visit volume), hospital admission rate, and percent of uninsured patients. Physi- cian staffing characteristics included total emergency physician full-time equivalents and proportion of Emer- gency Medicine Board Certified/Board Eligible (EM BC/ BE) physicians by the American Board of Emergency Medicine, American Osteopathic Board of Emergency Medicine, or the American Board of Pediatrics (Pediatric EM).

a. As a cooperative effort between brokers, MLSs and MLS vendors, the NBPP will be able to make use of a previously untapped source of SEO to benefit the portal. Currently, of 200,000,000 prospecting emails being sent by MLS system nationwide every month, none of the traffic from clients clicking on the links in the prospecting emails is used to any benefit. By directing those leads into the NBPP instead of back into an obscure URL within the MLS, the traffic can be consolidated into massive traffic that benefits the SEO without having to pay for advertising.

Making the Most of EU Labour Mobility. Report of a CEPS Task Force in Cooperation with the Bertelsmann Foundation. CEPS Task Force Report, 7 October 2014

At times, even before the creation of the EU, there were such incentives: escape from economic hardship and dictatorships in Greece, Portugal and Spain. Tens of thousands of Italians fled unemployment to work in Belgian mines during the first half of the last century. An estimated 10% of Greeks left their country between 1955 and 1973 (Karakatsanis and Swarts, 2003). Portuguese emigration almost reached 1.4 million (equal to 12% of the population) from 1950 to 1988. From the 1960s until the early 1970s, around 100,000 foreign workers sought employment in Germany, Switzerland and France each year. North-western European economies were booming in the 1960s, so absorption of these migrants created few problems, especially when the movements were temporary, as was the case for Spanish migrants to Germany (Figure 1).
