Biography

Jason Grumet, founder and president of the Bipartisan Policy Center is respected on both sides of the aisle for his innovative approach to improving government effectiveness and impacting public policy.

Over the last decade, BPC has combined the best ideas from both parties to promote health, security, and opportunity for all Americans. Under Grumet’s leadership, BPC has harnessed the power of collaboration to advocate for principled and politically viable policy solutions to major policy challenges facing our country. In 2019, BPC played a significant role in successful legislative efforts to strengthen key early childhood programs, accelerate the development of low-carbon energy technologies, expand access to retirement security for millions of Americans, and improve the nation’s response to the migration crisis at the southern border.

In 2001, Grumet founded and directed the National Commission on Energy Policy, which produced a comprehensive set of policy recommendations many of which were incorporated into the 2005 Energy Policy Act. Previously, Grumet led the Northeast States for Coordinated Air Use Management, where he expanded the organization’s technical and advocacy capabilities and increased its presence in national policy discussions.

Grumet regularly authors commentaries and editorials in national publications and participates in broadcast interviews on major cable news networks. He is frequently called upon to testify before Congressional committees on a range of topics, speak at national forums, and supply guidance to policymakers and business leaders.

Grumet is the author of City of Rivals: Restoring the Glorious Mess of American Democracy, released in September 2014.

Grumet received a Bachelor of Arts from Brown University and J.D. from Harvard University. He lives in Bethesda, Maryland with his wife and three children.

Career History
Co-Founder
2007 - Current

Founded in 2007 by former Senate Majority Leaders Howard Baker, Tom Daschle, Bob Dole and George Mitchell, the Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) is a non-profit organization that drives principled solutions through rigorous analysis, reasoned negotiation and respectful dialogue. With projects in multiple issue areas, BPC combines politically-balanced policymaking with strong, proactive advocacy and outreach. As the only Washington, DC-based think tank that actively promotes bipartisanship, BPC works to address the key challenges facing the nation. Our policy solutions are the product of informed deliberations by former elected and appointed officials, business and labor leaders, and academics and advocates who represent both ends of the political spectrum. We are currently focused on health, energy, national and homeland security, transportation, the economy, housing, immigration, and governance. BPC is committed to seeing our policy solutions enacted by lawmakers. Through the Bipartisan Policy Center Advocacy Network (BPCAN), our (c)(4) affiliate, we engage in advocacy and strategic outreach and education to bolster the legislative center and support efforts that bring Republicans and Democrats together on the difficult issues facing the country. While a healthy, civil debate among those with differing viewpoints is an essential component of our democracy, the current partisan tone in government is impeding progress. Through the Democracy Project and events like Bridge-Builder Breakfasts, political summits and timely policy discussions, BPC is fostering an ongoing conversation about how to overcome political divides and help make our government work better.
