Peer Review Agenda of HUD Influential and Highly Influential Scientific Assessments

An Information Quality Bulletin of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), dated December 16, 2004, and published in the Federal Register on January 14, 2005 (pages 2664-2677), required federal agencies to conduct a "peer review" of "Influential and Highly Influential Scientific Information," as those terms are defined in the Bulletin prior to dissemination to the public.

As of November 29, 2011 HUD is not aware of any influential scientific information, as defined in the OMB Bulletin, that is subject to the Bulletin's peer review reporting requirements.

For questions regarding the peer review requirement of the Bulletin, please contact Mark Shroder, Associate Deputy Assistant Secretary for Research, Evaluation, and Monitoring, at (202) 402-5922. For legal questions, please contact Ariel Pereira, Deputy Assistant General Counsel for Regulations, at (202) 708-3055.
