Allowable serif fonts for administrative documents are Garamond or Times/Times New Roman. Allowable sans serif fonts for administrative documents are Arial or Helvetica. Please see the Required Cover Specifications for further reference.

Publication Index Number

The BLM has a Publications Indexing System. The publication index number contains information about the agency, originating office, document type, fiscal year of publication, program responsibility, and revision date (if applicable). The publication index number is obtained from the printing specialist at the State Office.
