Kenneth Feinberg, the administrator of former BP oil spill claims processing facility, is about to come out with a book about his experience in the GCCF.
In the book titled “Who Gets What: Fair Compensation after Tragedy and Financial Upheaval,” Feinberg says none of his highly praised and wide-ranging previous experience in supervising public compensation funds got him ready for the challenges he faced during the GCCF administration.
The GCCF (Gulf Coast Claims Fund) was set up by BP shortly after the Gulf oil spill catastrophe for compensating victims. Feinberg was chosen by BP as well as President Obama as the administrator of the facility. He had experience in handling compensation fund for 9/11 victims. He had also handled funds for Agent Orange-affected Vietnam War veterans.
