DQA + IPD = Non-Biased Policy Decisions

Combining the Data Quality Act  (DQA)  with an Interactive Public Docket (IPD) will result in sound public policy free of bias.

 The Data Quality Act  establishes the analytical standards which, by statute, federal agencies must meet prior to issuing a federal report or a regulation… These standards include reproducibility, objectivity and transparency. The DQA allows the public to petition federal agencies to correct inaccurate information they have disseminated.

 An Interactive Public Docket  is a way the public can communicate to regulators on a 24/7 basis. Equally important the IPD is a method to enforce the DQA by providing a mechanism for garnering public support for DQA petitions filed by the public seeking a correction in  inaccurate information disseminated by a federal agency.
