JAS Communications LLC has been engaged to perform the independent
review of the TLG and has been tasked to deliver a final report prior to

During our interview, we are interested in: (1) understanding the
historical operations and impact of the TLG; (2) the role the TLG plays

questions prior to our appointment, and please feel at ease during our
