Data Quality Act of 2000

Passed in response to the increased use of the Internet by U.S. federal agencies, the act was designed to ensure the quality of information released by agencies by establishing four major requirements: (1) Office of Management and Budget was to issue guidelines "ensuring and maximizing the quality, objectivity, utility and integrity" of disseminated information; (2) agencies must issue their own sets of information quality guidelines; (3) agencies must establish administrative mechanisms for persons to correct erroneous information about themselves; (4) agencies must annually report to OMB regarding the number, nature and handling of complaints.
