Canceling a Directive
The section below was taken from Appendix G of DOE O 251.1D, Departmental Directives Program. Please see the entire order for the Directives Prioritization and Development Process.
If the cancellation of a directive is found to be necessary, the OPI must submit the directive to the Departmental Directives Program and the Directives Review Board (DRB) for inclusion on the Directives Prioritization list and schedule.
- Once the DRB reaches consensus on the cancellation, the DRB will determine the course of further cancellation review.
- If no objections are received on the cancellation of the directive, the Office of Primary Interest (OPI) will be instructed by the DRB to provide the Departmental Directives Program with an approval package.
- If a Policy, Order, or Manual is being canceled, the Departmental Directives Program transmits the approval package to the Deputy Secretary. If a Guide is being canceled, the Departmental Directives Program transmits that approval package to the Director, Office of Management.
