CRE Comments On OMB Data Quality Peer Review Proposal Emphasize That Guidance Is Necessary
In the Data Quality legislation Congress directed OMB to provide guidance to federal agencies that would "ensure and maximize" the information they disseminate. In the case of scientific and technical information, guidance on satisfactory peer review is essential for fulfilling this legal responsibility. CRE identified peer review as an essential element of Data Quality in its legislative working papers which it gave to Congress in 1997 and which it has made public on this website for several years.
