Instruction Memoranda (IMs)
National AML Strategic Plan | Instruction Memoranda | Technical Resources
Instruction Memoranda (IMs) are temporary policy directives issued by the BLM Washington and State Offices. IMs transmit new policies, procedures, and directions. Often IMs transmit urgent information to BLM employees. IMs expire at the end of the fiscal year following the year they were created. If they are still valid after that time period, the expiration date can be extended for one year. If the message in the IM is still valid after the one year extension, the IM needs to be reissued as a permanent directive (BLM Manual Supplement) or as another temporary directive.
All BLM IMs can be found in the BLM Online Library.
