DoD Regulatory Program


Guidance Documents

On October 9, 2019, the President signed Executive Order (E.O.) 13891, “Promoting the Rule of Law Through Improved Agency Guidance Documents,” to support the principles that the American public should only be subject to binding rules and regulations that are lawfully promulgated and that there must be fair notice of any such obligations.  The E.O. also emphasizes that “guidance documents” should not be used by agencies in place of rules and regulations, and that the explanations are only useful if the public has access to them.

Guidance documents come in a variety of formats.  For example, guidance documents include memoranda, statements of policy, interpretive rules, staff manuals, circulars, bulletins, advisories, or frequently asked questions that are designed to advise parties outside the federal Executive Branch about legal rights and obligations falling within the Department’s regulatory or enforcement authority.  Guidance documents lack the force and effect of law, unless expressly authorized by statute or incorporated into a contract.  The Department of Defense (DoD) may not cite, use, or rely on any guidance that is not posted on this website, except to establish historical facts.

 

Public Comment or Feedback

Any person may petition the DoD to withdraw or modify a particular guidance document by sending a written request to osd.mc-alex.ocmo.mbx.guidance-documents@mail.mil.  Please use the words "GUIDANCE:  [Insert the title of the significant guidance document from the list below]" in the subject line of the e-mail message.  The component should make an attempt to respond to all requests within 90 days after receipt of the request or as timely as possible given any constraints of the request.

When the DoD is developing a significant guidance document, a notice will be published in the Federal Register announcing the availability of the draft guidance document, and a copy of the draft will be provided on this website with a link to the electronic docket at www.regulations.gov.  The public can submit comments on the draft documents by following the instructions in the Federal Register publication and on Regulations.gov.

Alternatively, comments and petitions may be mailed to:

Office of the Chief Management Officer
Directorate for Oversight & Compliance
4800 Mark Center Drive, Attn: Mailbox #24
Suite 08D09
Alexandria, VA 22350-1700

ERDC/CRREL TR 14-13: A Guide to Ordinary High Water Mark (OHWM) Delineation for Non-Perennial Streams in the Western Mountains, Valleys, and Coast Region of the United States DOD-COE-00483 This document provides technical guidance for delineating the ordinary high water mark (OHWM) in non-perennial streams in the Western Mountains, Valleys, and Coast (WMVC) Region of the United States. Under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act, the OHWM defines the lateral extent of federal jurisdiction in non-tidal waters of the U.S. in the absence of adjacent wetlands. The OHWM in the WMVC Region is consistent with the physical and biological signature established and maintained at the boundaries of the active channel. Delineation of the active channel signature, and thus the OHWM, is based largely on identification of three primary physical or biological indicators—topographic break in slope, change in sediment characteristics, and change in vegetation characteristics. This guide addresses the underlying hydrologic and geomorphic concepts pertaining to the OHWM and the field indicators, methods, and additional lines of evidence used to assess and delineate the OHWM in WMVC non-perennial streams. The technical guidance presented here increases the accuracy and consistency of OHWM delineation practices in the WMVC Region. Ordinary High Water Mark (OHWM), Streams, Clean Water Act 01-AUG-2014

On September 21, 1972, Public Law (PL) 92-425 established the SBP to provide a survivor benefit program for military personnel in retirement to complement the survivor benefits under Social Security laws. The Plan gives all retiring uniformed services retirees an opportunity to elect to have their retired pay reduced by a designated amount in order to provide their survivors an annuity payable after the retiree’s death.Financial Management Regulation (FMR), Survivor Benefit, Application, Information, Retirement, BenefitTHE CHAPTER WAS ORIGINALLY ISSUED IN SEPTEMBER 1999.THE CHAPTER WAS LAST REVISED IN JULY 2019 AND IS PUBLICLY AVAILABLE ON THE FMR WEBSITE.
Financial Management Regulation (FMR) Volume 7B, Chapter 43, "Survivor Benefit Plan (SBP) - Elections and Election ChangesDOD-USC-00004The purpose of this chapter is to provide information for SBP election options, changes to elections, coverage, and termination of coverage. In the case of a member electing a standard SBP annuity, the member must make such election before retired pay becomes payable, or if there is no eligible beneficiary at that time, within 1 year of acquiring an eligible beneficiary. Written spousal concurrence is required when the member elects to decline coverage or provide the spouse with less than the maximum SBP coverage available, to include electing child-only coverage, and when a member eligible for RCSBP declines coverage or elects coverage that provides less than a maximum immediate spouse annuity. The signature of the spouse must be notarized. The requirement to have the spouse’s signature notarized is not to suggest that the spouse has received additional counseling regarding the option being selected. It simply provides certification that the spouse signed the form and acknowledges the election made on the form.Financial Management Regulation (FMR), Survivor Benefit, Elections, ReferencesTHE CHAPTER WAS ORIGINALLY ISSUED IN SEPTEMBER 1999.THE CHAPTER WAS LAST REVISED IN APRIL 2019 AND IS PUBLICLY AVAILABLE ON THE FMR WEBSITE.

An election to discontinue is effective as of the first day of the first month following the month in which the Secretary concerned receives the confirmation and acknowledgment. The retired member may revoke the request to discontinue participation within the 30-day period following submission of such request to the Secretary concerned. If, for some reason, the VA disability rating is withdrawn or reduced, SBP coverage may be resumed at the request of the retired member. The request to resume must be made within 1 year after the VA rating has been withdrawn or reduced.Financial Management Regulation (FMR), Survivor Benefit Plan, Premiums, Information, Payment, ParticipationTHE CHAPTER WAS ORIGINALLY ISSUED IN SEPTEMBER 1999.THE CHAPTER WAS LAST REVISED IN DECEMBER 2018 AND IS PUBLICLY AVAILABLE ON THE FMR WEBSITE.

The purpose of this chapter is to provide policy and requirements Debt Collection Offices (DCOs) must follow in the collection of public debts owed to the DoD. These debts include amounts outstanding from civilian employees, Service members, retired personnel, and other individuals. In the context of Federal debt collection, the constitutional right of “due process” requires an agency to provide debtors with written notice of the debt and an opportunity to dispute the debt. Due process is required prior to an involuntary salary offset (5 U.S.C. § 5514) or administrative offset (31 U.S.C. § 3716). Except under certain limited circumstances, debtors must receive due process prior to the initiation of debt collection. Written debt notifications must adhere to the requirements at section 0205.Financial Management Regulation (FMR), Instructions, Debt Owed, Civilian, Debt Pending, PetitionsTHE CHAPTER WAS ORIGINALLY ISSUED IN JANUARY 2016.THE CHAPTER WAS LAST REVISED IN APRIL 2019 AND IS PUBLICLY AVAILABLE ON THE FMR WEBSITE.

Contract debts result from amounts that have been paid to the contractor, to which the contractor is not entitled under the terms and conditions of the contract, or amounts otherwise due from the contractor. Once it is determined that a contractor might be indebted to the DoD, the contracting officer, or the payment office, must issue a demand for payment to the contractor, providing opportunity to inspect relevant records, and the opportunity to request a review of the debt. To the extent practicable, debts should be collected, either by voluntary repayment in a lump sum or by administrative offset(s) of payment(s) owed to the contractor by the DoD, unless an installment agreement has been entered into or a deferment of collection has been approved.Financial Management Regulation (FMR), Collection, Debt, Contractors, Information, Reporting, GuidanceTHE CHAPTER WAS ORIGINALLY ISSUED IN JANUARY 2016.THE CHAPTER WAS LAST REVISED IN AUGUST 2019 AND IS PUBLICLY AVAILABLE ON THE FMR WEBSITE.

The intent of IPA charges is to stimulate prompt debt payment, to compensate the government for loss of use of funds when debt is not paid timely, and to recover the cost of processing and handling delinquent debts, including referral to credit bureaus or collection agencies. DoD Components must accrue and assess a penalty charge, not to exceed 6 percent per annum, on any portion of the debt that is delinquent more than 90 days, to include interest and administrative charges. A debt becomes delinquent if not paid by the established due date; therefore, penalty charges must be applied to those accounts reported in the aging category 91-180 days delinquent and beyond.Financial Management Regulation (FMR), Interest, Penalties, Administrative Charges, Guidance, Information, RepaymentTHE CHAPTER WAS ORIGINALLY ISSUED IN JANUARY 2016.THE CHAPTER WAS LAST REVISED IN MARCH 2019 AND IS PUBLICLY AVAILABLE ON THE FMR WEBSITE.

Military Lending Act Limitations on Terms of Consumer Credit Extended to Service Members and DependentsDOD-UPR-00027The Department of Defense (Department) is amending its interpretive rule for the Military Lending Act (the MLA). The MLA, as implemented by the Department, limits the military annual percentage rate (MAPR) that a creditor may charge to a maximum of 36 percent, requires certain disclosures, and provides other substantive consumer protections on “consumer credit” extended to Service members and their families. On July 22, 2015, the Department amended its regulation primarily for the purpose of extending the protections of the MLA to a broader range of closed-end and open-end credit products (the July 2015 Final Rule). On August 26, 2016, the Department issued the first set of interpretations of that regulation in the form of questions and answers. On December 14, 2017, the Department issued a second set of interpretations of that regulation in the form of amended questions and answers. The Department is now withdrawing the amended question and answer number 2 (Q&A #2), published in the December 14, 2017 Interpretive Rule, which discussed when credit is extended for the purpose of purchasing a motor vehicle or personal property and the creditor simultaneously extends credit in an amount greater than the purchase price of the motor vehicle or personal property. In withdrawing this amended question and answer, the Department is reverting back to the original Q&A #2 published in the August 26, 2016 Interpretive Rule. This will allow the Department to conduct additional analysis on this matter. The Department is also adding a new question and answer to address questions about the use of Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers to identify covered borrowers in the Department's database.Military Lending Act Limitations on Terms of Consumer Credit Extended to Service Members and Dependents, Military Annual Percentage Rate (MAPR), Disclosures, Service Member, Families, military annual percentage rate (MAPR), Guidance, Compliance28-FEB-202028-FEB-2020
