Pehin Haha Consulting, sole proprietor
Minneapolis, Minnesota
Upon confirmation, my consulting business will cease engaging in any business other than as described below, including providing consulting services to clients. All outstanding client fees will be fixed before I enter government service. Through my consulting business, I am contracted to write three essays or articles for Casey Family Programs. If an essay or article is not completed before I assume the duties of Commissioner, Administration for Native Americans, then I will waive all payments for that pending essay or article. I also understand that the essays and articles will be subject to review by the Department of Health and Human Services to ensure that I do not disclose any confidential agency information or otherwise provide statements that would be inconsistent with the Department’s policies, operations, and programs.

I would value office assets such as equipment at less than $1,000. The primary value is my work product, which I would value based on contracts and speaking engagements.
