Director, The Pew Charitable Trust, Pew Fiscal Initiative and Subsidyscope, Washington, DC

Ingrid Schroeder is director of the Pew Fiscal Analysis Initiative and Subsidyscope at the Pew Center on the States, which provides independent and unbiased data on the health of the federal budget, its long-term sustainability, and the effects of a variety of fiscal policies to inform the debate on current, pressing concerns and to increase fiscal accountability, responsibility, and transparency. This work is leading to new projects that will examine the federal-state relationship looking specifically at how federal deficit reduction efforts could impact states. As lead on Pew's portfolio of federal fiscal analysis, Schroeder oversees a team of researchers, working in collaboration with outside experts from across the political spectrum, to provide policy makers, the media, and the public with solid, nonpartisan, analyses and accessible information. Recent analysis has examined issues related to the federal debt, budget, tax expenditures, and long-term unemployment. She has met with Congressional and White House leaders and has been interviewed on national television and radio programs as well as by top print publications. Prior to Pew, Schroeder was a senior executive at the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). During her 17 years at OMB, she supervised a team that coordinated and cleared the Administration's policy positions on legislation for the Departments of Health and Human Services, Education, Labor, Housing and Urban Development, and Veterans Affairs, other agencies such as the Social Security Administration and other federal agencies, and budget and regulatory issues. She also served as a program examiner with the Housing Treasury and Finance Division and as a legislative analyst handling Justice and Treasury policies while at OMB. In addition, Schroeder is on the DC Advisory Board for St. John's Community Services and Washington and Lee University's Williams School of Commerce, Economics, and Politics. She holds a bachelor of arts from Washington and Lee University where she majored in Public Policy and received her MPA from Syracuse University's Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs.
