Peer Review Agenda

On December 15, 2004, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) issued its Final Information Quality Bulletin for Peer Review (PDF). The Bulletin provides for agencies to peer review certain types of information before the information is disseminated to the public. In addition, the Bulletin provides for agencies to post a peer review agenda on their Web site by June 16, 2005, and update it at least every six months.
