GHSA Policies and Procedures Manual

Updated to reflect MAP-21 requirements. Additions have been underlined for ease of identification.

DISCLAIMER: NHTSA has stated that the OMB Uniform Guidance will be applicable beginning with FY 2016 grants and awards. Therefore, the GHSA Policy Manual and Management Review materials have not yet been updated to include the new OMB Uniform Guidance.

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.

GHSA Policies and Procedures Manual cover page

The purpose of this sample manual is to establish consistent program and project management procedures for staff and sub-grantees to guide the administration of the states' traffic safety program in compliance with U.S. DOT, NHTSA regulations.

All files are in Microsoft Word Word icon format so staff can manipulate the content to best meet their needs. To begin, save the files to your computer and open them in Word.
