Policies

  1. The manuals and handbooks that describe how BLM operates
  2. Instruction Memoranda and Information Bulletins.

What Are Instruction Memoranda? They are temporary directives that supplement the Bureau Manual Sections. Instruction Memoranda:

  • contain new policy or procedures that must reach BLM employees quickly,
  • interpret existing policies, or
  • provide one-time instructions.

They are issued only when urgency compels release of a directive before the information can be incorporated into a Manual Section or when the issue is treated as a onetime occurrence. There are two kinds of IMs — WO (National) which apply to all of BLM and Director’s Office (DO) which apply only to Washington Office operations.

Click the fiscal year you are interested in researching online National Instruction Memoranda (IM). Generally these Directives represent current policy with a lifespan of 2 years (unless otherwise extended).

BLM has also established an archive of IMs. Each year is one compressed file in the zip format. You can use any common decompression program to decompress the file. Each year has an index (not hyperlinked) to each file showing its contents. This archive is intended to be used for research purposes since in most cases the effective period of the Directive is over.
