Each agency has its own timeline for implementation of their policy, but generally 2015 - 2016 is when most will begin to be in force. For example, the agencies under Health and Human Services are expected to begin implementation by October 2015 while NSF is planning for January 2016. Consult our OSTP Mandates grid for enforcement dates by agency. Also, Librarians in the Scholarly Commons would be happy to consult with you on ensuring your compliance with the policy and recommending best practices.
