|Directors Office Instruction Memoranda|
What Are Instruction Memoranda? They are temporary directives that supplement the Bureau Manual Sections. Instruction Memoranda:
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 treated is a one time 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.
We have also established an archive of DO IMs. Unlike the other Directives, due to the extremely small number of these issued, we have combined all years into one file which is one compressed file in the zip format. You can use any common uncompressor to uncompress the file. The file 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.
