DISCLAIMER: The current version of the Policy Manual has not been updated to include the NHTSA FAQ issued in April and revised in May 2020 on the impact of the national emergency on the highway safety grant programs for FY20 and FY21.
See below for the latest revision dates. Additions have been underlined for ease of identification.
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 subrecipients 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.
