Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) Governing Board
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act [Section 6301 and Section 10602, Public Law 111-148] requires the Comptroller General of the United States to appoint 19 members to the Board of Governors of the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI). The Act also provides that the Directors of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality and the National Institutes of Health, or their designees, be members of the Board.
Members of the Board appointed by the Comptroller General serve six-year terms and may be reappointed for one subsequent six-year term. The terms of the PCORI Board members first appointed are staggered, with the appointments made in September 2010 set at two, four, and six year terms. Board members must meet the qualifications listed in the Act. The Act also directs the Comptroller General to appoint not more than 15 members to a Methodology Committee of PCORI.
Due to the resignation of a physician representative on the board, GAO is accepting letters of nomination and resumes to fill the expected vacancy. Submissions should be made by November 15, 2013 to ensure adequate opportunity for review and consideration of nominees prior to appointment. Letters of nomination and resumes can be sent to Gene Dodaro, Comptroller General, at the following e-mail address or postal address:
