The NPS is updating its current system of internal written instructions. When these documents contain new policy or procedural requirements that may affect parties outside the NPS, they are first made available for public review and comment before being adopted. Director's Order #7 and a reference manual (subsequent to the Director's Order) will be issued. The draft Director's Order covers topics such as volunteer activities, management, uniforms, reimbursement, housing, use of personal equipment, and reporting requirements.
Public Availability of Comments: Please note that the comments submitted in response to this notice are a matter of public record. Before including your address, phone number, email address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment—including your personal identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time. While you may ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.
