NOTE: The Confidentiality Statement links only displays if the reviewer has not signed the agreement for the meeting. The links are removed once the agreement is signed.

In IAR, reviewers are required to indicate whether they are federally registered lobbyists before being granted access to a meeting. Office of Management and Budget (OMB) policy requires a ban on the appointment of federally registered lobbyists to federal advisory committees and other boards and commissions. The steps for signing the agreement vary depending on this designation. The Confidentiality Agreement explains this process and prompts reviewers to provide a status before electronically signing the agreement and gaining access to the meeting.
