Section 515 of Public Law 106-554, known as the Information Quality Act, required the Office of Management and Budget to promulgate guidance to agencies ensuring the quality, objectivity, utility, and integrity of information (including statistical information) disseminated by Federal agencies. OMB's government-wide guidelines, published as interim final on September 28, 2002 (66 F.R. 49718) and finalized on February 22, 2002 (67 F.R. 8452), can be found on OIRA's website. Federal agencies were also required by Section 515 to publish their own agency specific guidelines no later than one year after OMB's guidelines.
An updated listing of Agency information quality web-pages can be found in Appendix C of the Draft 2007 Report To Congress On The Costs And Benefits Of Federal Regulations. This report can be found at: /omb/inforeg/2007_cb/2007_draft_cb_report.pdf.
