In addition, this information demonstrates DHAP compliance with the specific requirements of the Information Quality Act (2000), 44 U.S.C. §3516external icon, and of peer review standards developed by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). OMB requirements, described in the Peer Review Bulletinexternal icon, include making publicly available specific information on the peer review of influential documents disseminated by the federal government. OMB has defined two special categories of influential information, Influential Scientific Information (ISI) and Highly Influential Scientific Assessments (HISAs).
