Section 515 of the Treasury & General Government Appropriations Act for FY 2001 (Public Law No. 106-554) requires each Federal agency to publish guidelines for ensuring and maximizing the quality, objectivity, utility, and integrity of the information it disseminates to the public. Agency guidelines must be based on government-wide guidelines issued by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). In compliance with this statutory requirement and OMB instructions, OGE has posted its draft Information Quality Guidelines on the OGE Internet Web site (http://www.usoge.gov under “What's New!”). The draft guidelines describe the Agency's proposed procedures for ensuring the quality of information that it disseminates to the public and the proposed procedures by which an affected person could obtain correction of information disseminated by OGE that did not comply with the guidelines. The Office of Government Ethics invites public comments on its draft guidelines and will consider the comments received in developing its proposed final guidelines, which must be submitted to OMB for review.
Persons who cannot access the draft guidelines through the Internet may request a paper or electronic copy by contacting Ms. Donovan at the address, phone number, E-mail address, or FAX number listed above.Start Signature
