Political observer Norm Ornstein writes in Roll Call, “A few years back I helped supervise a project to create a comprehensive software package for presidential [appointee] nominees to use to fill out all the disclosure and conflict-of-interest forms. The American software company doing the work could not complete it, and the only place we could go to get it done well and on time was Mumbai. The software engineers there did a great job—and ended up knowing more about the intricacies of the American executive branch nomination and confirmation process than most scholars who teach about it.”
