NPA Policies, Memorandums & Guides
The NPA Director's Office provides guidance for proper implementation of Federal, USDA, and ARS policy and regulations. Policy memoranda address such issues as program review, ethics, travel, safety and health, physical and cyber security, grants and agreements, and fiscal and budget, human resource and property management.
For convenience, the Area Memorandums are linked below. Also linked below are policies specific to Fort Collins personnel, along with informal guides or documents providing tips for coordinating special events or activities which typically raise procedural questions from location staff (such as groundbreakings, dedications, etc).
