CRE Invokes Data Quality Act for NHTSA Information Collection Request
One of OMB's tools in enforcing agency compliance with the Data Quality Act is through their statutory authority, under the Paperwork Reduction Act, to decide whether to approve Information Collection Requests. OMB has publicly committed to approve only those proposed information collections that "are likely to obtain data that would comply with OMB and agency" Data Quality guidelines. NHTSA recently submitted an ICR for the TREAD Act-related Early Warning reporting system. In comments to OMB, CRE demonstrated NHTSA has not yet complied ith DOT's Data Quality guidelines in several critical respects including making public a detailed plan for using the data that would be obtained under the ICR. In that Early Warning ICR is one of the first major information collections to be presented to OMB after October 1st, CRE will be reporting on the Early Warning reporting system's compliance with the Data Quality Act.
