Listening Session on EB-5: Pre-dissemination Requirements under the Data Quality Act (DQA)

OMB guidelines implementing the DQA state:

As a matter of good and effective agency information resources management, agencies shall develop a process for reviewing the quality (including the objectivity, utility, and integrity) of information before it is disseminated.

An agency spokesman replied that it would comply with all applicable statutes and regulations, including the Data Quality Act. The agency is to be complimented for  its commitment to the quality of the information  it disseminates.
