®: CRE Regulatory Action of the Week

OMB Urged to Include DOT's Data Quality Guidelines In Regulatory Analysis Guidelines
CRE recommended OMB include the statistical portion of DOT's Data Quality guidelines in OIRA's government-wide regulatory analysis guidelines. CRE advocates use of these statistical guidelines (Appendix A of the DOT Data Quality guidelines) by all agencies in their regulatory analyses because the guidelines constitute a "best practice" that promotes transparency throughout the analytic process. The guidelines also contain analytic principles for employing sound statistical methods, identifying and correcting errors, and ensuring clarity of work products. CRE's comments were in response to OMB's request for comment on their Draft 2003 Report to Congress on the Costs and Benefits of Federal Regulations.
