    WELCOME to the Facilities Division (FA) Document Management Webpage. This site contains all approved FA documents internal to the operations of the FA. Documents include policies, procedures (standard operating procedures/guidelines), program manuals, plans, reports, master specifications, templates, forms, etc. Click here for Document Types and Levels.

    This webpage allows you to access and view documents, and provides guidance on creating new documents, revising existing documents, or archiving obsolete documents.

    Each document has an “Effective Date” and a “Next Review Date” to ensure validity and currency. Each document also has a unique document number that conforms to a document numbering convention that identifies the FA Functional Area, a specific topical area, document type, and three-digit identifier. For example, the procedure on Off-site or Overnight Use of a Government Vehicle has a document number: OP.FL.PRC.002, where OP stands for the Operations functional area, FL for Fleet Operations, PRC for a procedure, and 002 as the numeric identifier. Click here for further explanation of the document numbering convention.
