National Science Foundation Information Quality Guidelines

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.

The following documents provide the National Science Foundation Information Quality Guidelines and the NSF Information Correction Form.
