SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On February 22, 2002, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) published “Guidelines for Ensuring and Maximizing the Quality, Objectivity, Utility, and Integrity of Information Disseminated by Federal Agencies; Republication” in the Federal Register (67 FR 8452). In accordance with these OMB guidelines, the PBGC posted draft information quality guidelines on its Web site and, in a Federal Register notice (67 FR 21779, May 1, 2002), announced the availability of those draft guidelines and invited public comment by May 31, 2002.

Under OMB guidelines, agencies were to consider any public comments, make appropriate revisions, and submit draft information quality guidelines for OMB review no later than July 1, 2002. In response to public requests to some agencies to extend their comment deadline, OMB has informed the PBGC that it intends to extend the deadline for agencies to submit their draft guidelines for OMB review to August 1, 2002. Consistent with OMB's extension, the PBGC is extending the May 31, 2002, comment deadline to June 30, 2002.
