OIRA Memorandum Implementation of Executive Order 13422 and OMB's Bulletin on Good Guidance Practices
"The principal change made by EO 13422 is that it amends EO 12866 to establish a process that will provide an opportunity for interagency coordination and review of significant guidance documents prior to their issuance. EO 13422 also amends EO 12866 in several other ways. To ensure appropriate accountability, the EO modifies the procedures for an agency's adoption of its annual Regulatory Plan and requires that an agency's Regulatory Policy Officer be a Presidential appointee. The EO also updates the Principles of Regulation in EO 12866 to reflect the guidance-coordination provisions that are added by EO 13422 as well as pre-existing OMB guidance. Finally, the EO invites agencies to consider whether they would want to rely on formal rulemaking procedures for resolving complex determinations."
