This chapter adopts the OMB Guidelines for Ensuring and Maximizing the Quality, Objectivity, Utility, and Integrity of Information Disseminated by Federal Agencies (referred to in this ADS chapter as the OMB Guidelines). This chapter contains the USAID-specific policy directives and required procedures to implement the OMB Guidelines and applies to the majority of USAID-developed and USAID-funded information that is disseminated to the public across all media- printed, electronic, or in other form. The OMB Guidelines implement Section 515 of the Treasury and General Government Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 2001 (Pub. L. 106-554).
