HHS Guidelines for Ensuring and Maximizing the Quality, Objectivity, Utility, and Integrity of Information Disseminated to the Public. 1. Purpose

10/01/2002

These Guidelines describe the policies and procedures that HHS agencies employ to ensure the quality of the information they disseminate and the administrative complaint mechanisms that HHS agencies make available to the public. The Guidelines provide policy and procedural guidance to HHS staff and are intended to inform the public about agency quality assurance policies and procedures.

HHS views the guidelines as an evolving document and process. HHS will continually review the performance of the guidelines in the context of agency statutes and missions and will make revisions to the guidelines as necessary.
