The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) issued Government-wide guidelines under section 515 of the Treasury and General Government Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 2001 (Pub. L. 106554) to ensure and maximize the quality, objectivity, utility and integrity of information disseminated by Federal agencies. Each Federal agency is responsible for issuing its own section 515 guidelines.
