Policy Memoranda

Policy Memoranda are an option for creating policy within the National Park Service Directives System. Signed by the Director, their role is to accommodate simple, urgent, or interim policy needs. Unlike Director’s Orders, Policy Memoranda usually do not undergo extensive review. The content may be incorporated into existing or proposed Director’s Orders.

For further information on Policy Memoranda, please refer to Director’s Order #1, section 8. For more information on Director’s Orders, visit our Director’s Order webpage.

The listing below shows current Policy Memoranda and related documents.
