Updated September 2016. Additions have been underlined for ease of identification.
DISCLAIMER: The GHSA Policy Manual September 2016 update does NOT include the parts of the new NHTSA IFR requirements (dated May 23, 2016) which pertain to FY18. Those parts are subject to public comments which close October 31, 2016. The GHSA Policy Manual will be updated again when NHTSA responds to the public comments and finalizes the IFR.
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.
All files are in Microsoft Word 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.
