Announcement of Division Information Bulletins

11-19-2010


The Division is establishing the use of Division Bulletins in an effort to improve and organize the various formal communications released from the Division to stakeholders. We have developed a page on the Department's web site where these will be posted, organized and updated. Please see DDD Bulletins

A simple numbering system is being used for these Bulletins:

in the case of this document, it is numbered DD10.001.

  • DD.10.001. - Reflects the division source. This is utilized to clearly separate these Bulletins from documents released by other Divisions within the Department.
  • DD.10.001.10 - Reflects the calendar year in which the Bulletin is established.
  • DD.10.001 - Reflects the number of the Bulletin. In this case, it is the first of the calendar year. With each successive year, the number will revert back to 001, as in DD.11.001, reflecting the first for calendar year 2011.
  • The titles of Bulletins will be written such that they lend themselves to a key word search for ease of use. For example, "Emergency ICF/DD Closure", could be found using a search of either "emergency", "ICF/DD," or "closure."

A note will be sent to identified stakeholders when a new Informational Bulletin is released informing them of its availability on the web site.
