FY 2007 Instruction Memorandums (IMs)

Instruction Memorandums (IMs) provide new policy or procedural instructions which must reach BLM employees quickly or interpret existing regulations, policies, or instructions and are used when there is not enough time to issue a Manual Release. IMs are generally used for transmitting material of an urgent nature. Generally these Directives represent current policy with a lifespan of 2 years (unless otherwise extended). Records with the category of I (internal) or R (restricted) are for internal use only, and may not be released to the public without a Freedom of Information Act request.

Records Category: P = Public, I = Internal, R = Restricted
