Reg Week®: CRE Regulatory Action of the Week

EPA Expresses Support for OMB Data Quality Guidelines
EPA, already one of the leading agencies in terms of its process to ensure information quality, recently expressed its strong support for OMB's proposed Data Quality guidelines, that set government-wide standards for the quality of information disseminated to the public. In its comments to OMB, EPA's Office of the Inspector General stated that it "has reviewed the proposed guidelines and concurs. In our opinion, the guidelines will assist in maximizing data quality without being overly prescriptive or burdensome." EPA has demonstrated its commitment by its long history of working on information quality issues, and interested parties look forward to the agency's development of its conforming guidelines for Data Quality. CRE believes that EPA may be a model for other federal agencies as they seek to implement the provisions of the Data Quality law.
