Administrative Law Research Guide: OIRA and OMB

This guide is intended for students who are learning about administrative law and its sources, and to help scholars and practitioners locate materials in the library and online. Content additions will be gradual but steady. Please check back often!

The Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) is a sub-agency within the Office of Management and Budget(OMB). OMB is responsible for executive oversight of the federal regulatory process.
Executive Order 12866 describes OIRA's role in rulemaking, and sets requirements that agencies must follow when involved in rulemaking, including cost/benefit analyses and alternatives to regulation.

Reports of OIRA reviews are available to the public.
