Kerrie Leslie, Senior Statistician, Office of the Chief Statistician of the United States, OMB (invited)
Moderator: Bonnie Ghosh-Dastidar, 2024 President, American Statistical Association
The Office of Management and Budget published a proposed rule on August 18 with potentially substantial positive ramifications for the Federal statistical system. Officially titled, “Fundamental Responsibilities of Recognized Statistical Agencies and Units,” the “Trust Regulation” proposes numerous provisions to promote public trust in the recognized Federal statistical agencies and units that produce Federal statistics. Orvis and Leslie will overview and respond to questions on the regulation, which is key milestone in implementing Title III of the Foundations for Evidence-Based Policymaking Act of 2018 (Evidence Act).
Comments on the regulation can be submitted on regulations.gov under Docket ID “OMB-2023-0015” and are due October 2, 2023.
