UCS Evaluates the Scientific Integrity Memo at Four Years

The Union of Concerned Scientists has released an analysis on the status of agencies four years after President Obama signed a memorandum for the heads of executive departments and agencies on scientific integrity and the Office of Science and Technology Policy released guidance for agencies in writing policies and implementing the memo’s principles. UCS’s report sets a higher bar than OTSP, and evaluates the strengths and weaknesses of the policies made.
