the Office of Science and Technology Policy. DOL is soliciting comments 
on its draft policy using an Internet portal specifically designed to 
capture your input and suggestions, http://dolscientificintegrity.ideascale.com/. This portal contains a series of 
questions designed to gather information on how DOL can best meet the 
requirements of these memoranda. The ability to comment using the 
portal has remained uninterrupted since it was first made available for 
use.
    The Department of Labor is issuing this request solely to seek 
useful information as it develops its policy. While responses to this 
request do not bind the Department of Labor to any further actions 
related to the responses,
