The Office of Management and Budget’s (OMB) requires agencies to maintain a list of significant guidance documents as indicated in the Final Bulletin for Agency Good Guidance Practices (PDF)
OMB established good guidance practices to ensure that guidance documents of executive branch departments and agencies are:
- developed with appropriate review and public participation,
- accessible and transparent to the public,
- of high quality, and
- not improperly treated as legally binding requirements.
Based on the criteria, contained in the OMB Bulletin cited above, for designating a document as one containing "significant guidance", the Bureau of Reclamation has determined that it has no documents that meet that definition. However, Reclamation will follow the proper procedures for creating, issuing, and using significant guidance documents if it is anticipated that a document being developed may meet the criteria.
