- On August 25, 2023, OMB issued a Federal Register Notice of Solicitation of Comments on a proposal to modify one provision of OMB Statistical Policy Directive No. 3 to allow Executive Branch employees to comment publicly on Principal Federal Economic Indicator data thirty minutes after the official data release time, which would replace the current wait of one hour. Public input is important and needed to help inform OMB’s final determination. Comments are due by October 24, 2023, and can be submitted on regulations.gov under Docket ID “OMB-2023-0016”.
- On August 18, 2023, OMB published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on the Fundamental Responsibilities of Statistical Agencies and Units, or the “Trust Regulation.” This marks a key milestone in the implementation of the Foundations for Evidence-Based Policymaking Act of 2018 (Evidence Act).
