|Title:||Improving the Application of the Sensitive Policy Designation|
|Type:||EM - Emergency Messages|
|Link To Reference:|
This emergency message (EM) announces an upcoming change in the business process for all instructions designated as sensitive at the time of the publication request.
On October 1, 2020, agency stakeholders met to discuss how we apply the sensitive designation to policy instructions. Following the discussion, we developed a draft proposal to improve the application of the sensitive policy designation.
For each publication, an AC signoff sheet is already required. To ensure the sensitive designation is appropriate, we will be modifying the AC-Level Signoff Document to require a more stringent review and added justification for applying the designation.
Direct all program–related and technical questions to the PolicyNet Central Office contacts.
