The Office of Management and Budget issued its Final Information Quality Bulletin for Peer Review (70 FR 2664) on January 14, 2005. The bulletin contains guidelines on peer-reviewing information products that qualify as "influential scientific information" and "highly influential scientific assessments." The bulletin directs Federal agencies to post to their public Web sites an "agenda" of peer reviews, with brief descriptions of all planned and ongoing peer reviews of information products qualifying as influential scientific information or highly influential scientific assessments. For each peer review, the agency is required to prepare a peer review plan and post the plan on the agency's public Web site.
