20 U.S. Code § 9576 - Authority to publish
The Director may prepare and publish (including through oral presentation) such research, statistics (consistent with part C of this subchapter), and evaluation information and reports from any office, board, committee, and center of the Institute, as needed to carry out the priorities and mission of the Institute without the approval of the Secretary or any other office of the Department.
The Director shall provide the Secretary and other relevant offices with an advance copy of any information to be published under this section before publication.
All research, statistics, and evaluation reports conducted by, or supported through, the Institute shall be subjected to rigorous peer review before being published or otherwise made available to the public.
 So in original. Probably should be “subsection”.
