Re: DOL Data Quality Guidelines

Dear Mr. Pizzella

Enclosed please find a Working Draft copy of a CRE white paper, Developing DOL's Data Quality Guidelines: A Step-by-Step Guide. The primary purposes of the Working Draft document are to provide the Department with:

  • A blueprint of the specific tasks DOL needs to perform to develop their draft Data Quality guidelines; and
  • A starting point for discussions within the Department and between the Department and public stakeholders on key Data Quality issues.
  • For each major Data Quality guideline development task, the white paper provides a discussion of:

  • Guidance provided by OMB:
  • DOL application of OMB guidance; and
  • CRE's recommendations.
  • CRE will be contacting your office to begin establishing an information exchange on issues related to the development of DOL's Data Quality guidelines.

    I look forward to working with you and your staff.
