Data Quality Standards
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 (Public Law 106-554) to
ensure and maximize the quality, objectivity, utility and integrity
of information disseminated by Federal agencies. OMB's interim
final guidelines were published in the Federal Register at 66 FR
49,718 on Friday, September 28, 2001. The final guidelines were
published in the Federal Register at 67 FR 8452 on February 22,
2002. Each Federal agency is responsible for issuing its own section
515 guidelines. As a result, The National Science Foundation has
developed corresponding information quality guidelines.
If you would like to seek a correction under Section 515, please
submit a completed NSF Information Correction Form electronically
via mail to Section 515 Information Quality Officer; The National
Science Foundation; 4201 Wilson Blvd., Suite 305; Washington, D.C.
22230; or via fax to (703) 292-9084.
At this time, NSF has received no information quality correction
requests; however, NSF will update this page if it receives any
INFLUENTIAL SCIENTIFIC INFORMATION
Based on the review it has conducted, the National Science Foundation
believes that it does not currently produce or sponsor the distribution
of influential scientific information (including highly influential
scientific assessments) within the definitions promulgated by OMB.
As a result, at this time NSF has no agenda of forthcoming influential
scientific disseminations to post on its website in accordance
with OMB's Information Quality Bulletin for Peer Review.
