In Nov. 2005, the President issued an executive order establishing the Office of the Fed. Coordinator for Gulf Coast Rebuilding (OFC) with the broad mission of supporting recovery efforts following Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Given their vast size and impact, these storms presented unprecedented rebuilding challenges to federal, state, and local officials which, combined with concerns about the lack of coordination in the government¿s initial response to the disaster, precipitated the creation of the OFC. This report: (1) describes the functions the Coordinator has performed; (2) obtains stakeholder perspectives regarding the office's operation; and (3) provides observations on issues to be considered for moving forward.
