SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On May 1, 2002 (67 FR 21779), OMB announced it was seeking comments on its draft Information Quality Guidelines by June 14, 2002. OMB is now extending that comment period to July 1, 2002. These Information Quality Guidelines describe OMB's pre-dissemination information quality control and an administrative mechanism for requests for correction of information publicly disseminated by OMB. The draft Information Quality Guidelines are posted on OMB's Web site, http://www.whitehouse.gov/​omb/​inforeg/​index.html.

On January 3, 2002 (67 FR 369), with a correction published on February 22, 2002 (67 FR 8452), OMB published government-wide Guidelines for Ensuring and Maximizing the Quality, Objectivity, Utility, and Integrity of Information Disseminated by Federal Agencies. Paragraph IV.5 of these Guidelines calls upon each agency Ano later than July 1, 2002,” to submit the agency's draft final information quality guidelines to OMB for review regarding the consistency of its guidelines with OMB's January 3 government-wide Guidelines. OMB is extending this deadline to no later than August 1, 2002.

This extension of the July 1 deadline to August 1 provides agencies additional time to seek public comment on their proposed information quality guidelines, and to reconsider their draft guidelines in light of the public comments they do receive.
