The Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) was created by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1980 in order to administer the requirements of the Act, namely reviewing requests from agencies to collect information. OIRA has the added responsibility of carrying out presidential reviews of rules, although this function was added by executive order, not law. Located in the Office of Management and Budget, OIRA is the office most central to carrying out the White House's regulatory policy.
