Data Quality Program Needed at BLM

The Shawave roundup ended with three unaccounted-for horses.

The numbers from the Diamond roundup don’t balance.

The Black Mountain roundup is off to a bad start, with a discrepancy in the number of burros captured.

Wouldn’t hurt to have a program at the Forest Service also, as the number of horses gathered at Devil’s Garden doesn’t match the total from the daily results.

    In December 2000, Congress passed and the President signed the Treasury and General Government Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 2001 (Public Law 106-554). Section 515 of that more than 700-page bill has subsequently been referred to as the “Data Quality Act” or the “Information Quality Act” (IQA) (codified at 44 U.S.C. 3504(d)(1) and 3516). Although little noticed at the time, the IQA has subsequently been the subject of intense debate and controversy. The act required the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to issue guidance to federal agencies designed to ensure the “quality, objectivity, utility, and integrity” of information disseminated to the public. It also required agencies to issue their own information quality guidelines, and to establish administrative mechanisms that allow affected persons to seek correction of information maintained and disseminated by the agencies that does not comply with the OMB guidance. kat
