GHSA Policies and Procedures Manual

Updated February 2016. Additions have been underlined for ease of identification.

DISCLAIMER: GHSA guidance documents have not been updated to include the requirements in the IFR published in the Federal Register on May 23, 2016, which implement the FAST Act.

Best practice requires that the State Highway Safety Offices (SHSOs) have in place a current policies and procedures manual which documents standard operating procedures and the management of the traffic safety program.
