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.
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.
