What are Handbooks? Handbooks are the source of detailed instructions for performing specialized procedures to carry out policy and direction described in the Manual Section. Handbooks provide specific detailed instructions, techniques, procedures, practices, and processes. Handbooks do not contain broad objectives, policies, assignment of responsibilities, or delegations needed primarily by line officials and principal staff officials to administer programs. Handbooks are considered part of the Manual. They have the same force of authority as the Manual Section.
