Mr. Hagedorn - Thank you for voting yes to establish a searchable database related to federal grants. In addition to the transparency and accountability aspects of the bill, I see an additional benefit. Before I retired and settled in Winona, MN, I was a Corporate Strategy Consultant for Xcel Energy. In that capacity, I was frequently involved in research projects related to emerging technologies. Often these were collaborative projects with the University of MN and the Department of Energy. It would have been useful to identify and connect with other researchers, and searching a database of related grants would have been useful.
