Peer Review Agenda

The U.S. Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has issued guidelines for the peer review of important scientific information before it is disseminated by the Federal government. OMB published its "Final Information Quality bulletin for Peer Review" in the Federal Register on January 14, 2005, at 70 FR 2664-2677. The Bulletin provides specific requirements for peer reviews of highly influential scientific assessments and influential scientific information that are disseminated by Federal agencies, including posting the agenda and plans for such peer review on agency Web sites.

The review process for SAP 4.3, "The Effects of Climate Change on Agriculture, Land Resources, Water Resources, and Biodiversity" is complete.

We are grateful to SAP 4.3's expert review panel.
