Published: DOE-HDBK-1240-2021, Institutional Controls Implementation Handbook for Use with Use of Institutional Controls

This Handbook provides information to assist Department of Energy (DOE) program and field offices in understanding what is necessary and acceptable for implementing the provisions of DOE Policy (P) 454.1, Use of Institutional Controls. It identifies issues that need to be addressed when considering the use of institutional controls to support DOE’s diverse missions. Neither this Handbook nor the Policy include requirements, rather the Policy establishes the Department’s commitment to using institutional controls effectively to meet requirements contained in other directives or regulations. For example, DOE P 454.1 helps ensure that institutional controls will be integrated into the DOE Order (O) 436.1, Departmental Sustainability, environmental management system (EMS) implementation framework to help protect the public and the environment.
