Economics & Human Dimensions Program Review Science and Technology Response FY2017
Scientific integrity is a fundamental element of the process by which NOAA delivers the best available science and
earns the public’s trust in our science and management. To this end, NOAA drafted a policy to uphold scientific
integrity principles contained in the President’s March 9, 2009, Memorandum and in the December 17, 2010,
Memorandum on Scientific Integrity1 from Dr. John Holdren, Director of the Office of Science and Technology
Policy. Peer review is an essential element of this policy and these reviews are an opportunity for scientific exchange,
maintaining and improving standards, improving performance, and increasing scientific credibility.
