SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On February 22, 2002, the Office of 
Management and Budget (OMB) published ``Guidelines for Ensuring and 
Maximizing the Quality, Objectivity, Utility, and Integrity of 
Information Disseminated by Federal Agencies; Republication'' in the 
Federal Register (67 FR 8452). In accordance with these OMB guidelines, 
the PBGC posted draft information quality guidelines on its Web site 
and, in a Federal Register notice (67 FR 21779, May 1, 2002), announced 
the availability of those draft guidelines and invited public comment 
by May 31, 2002.
    Under OMB guidelines, agencies were to consider any public 
comments, make appropriate revisions, and submit draft information 
quality guidelines for OMB review no later than July 1, 2002. In 
response to public requests to some agencies to extend their comment 
deadline, OMB has informed the PBGC that it intends to extend the 
deadline for agencies to submit their draft guidelines for OMB review 
to August 1, 2002. Consistent with OMB's extension, the PBGC is 
extending the May 31, 2002, comment deadline to June 30, 2002.

    Issued in Washington, DC, on this 6th day of June, 2002.
