The Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 specifies several key directions for the Bureau, notably that:

- goals and objectives be established as guidelines for public land use planning, and that management be on the basis of multiple use and sustained yield unless otherwise specified by law;

- and that the public lands be managed in a manner that will protect the quaility of scientific, science, historical, ecological, environmental, air and atmospheric, water resource, and archaeological values;

- that, where appropriate, will preserve and protect certain public lands in their natural condition;

- that will provide food and habitat for fish and wildlife and domestic animals;

- and that will provide for outdoor recreation and human occupancy and use.
