Information Quality – Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) Peer Review Agenda
(Updated December 2010)

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) directive, Final Information Quality Bulletin for Peer Review, dated December 16, 2004 (263 KB PDF), requires that there be a "systematic process of peer review planning" and public access to a list of information products for that will be peer reviewed as either influential scientific information or highly influential scientific assessments.

Below are the documents for which Reclamation is undertaking peer review in accordance with the OMB directive.
