The Data Quality Act
American Bar Association, 12 PM GMT
The Regulatory Policy Committee of the Administrative Law and Regulatory Practice Section presents a brown bag lunch program on the Data Quality Act. The Data Quality Act (DQA) or Information Quality Act (IQA) directs the Office of Management and Budget to issue government-wide guidelines that "provide policy and procedural guidance to Federal agencies for ensuring and maximizing the quality, objectivity, utility, and integrity of information (including statistical information) disseminated by Federal agencies.” Some believe that DQA/IQA plays an important role in policy making. Others believe that the law acts as a roadblock to the regulatory process.
Come hear experts discuss recent developments and thoughts about this important issue. The panel will be followed by a question and answer period.
- Alan Morrison, Lerner Family Associate Dean for Public Interest and Public Service Law; Professorial Lecturer in Law, George Washington University Law School, Washington, DC.
