Department of Homeland Security Management Directives

The DHS Directives Systems is the primary means of establishing policies, requirements, and responsibilities to articulate on the Department’s missions, programs, and activities.

The system is made up of Directives and Instructions. Directives briefly build on DHS policy statements, policies, missions, programs, activities, or business practices of a continuing nature that are authorized by statute. Instructions implement or supplement DHS Management Directives by providing uniform procedures and/or prescribing the manner or a specific plan or action for carrying out the policy, operating a program or activity, and assigning responsibilities.

DHS Management Directives are listed here in alphabetical order by topic.
