Catalog Available of Pennsylvania Nonregulatory Documents
August 9, 2002

The Department of Public Welfare's Offices of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services, Mental Retardation, Social Programs, Children Youth and Families and the Departments of Health and Aging have published lists of nonregulatory documents in the Pennsylvania Bulletin, as required by a 1996 Executive Order issued by Governor Ridge. Governor Schweiker is continuing the requirement that agencies of state government publish nonregulatory documents such as bulletins, policy statements, guidance manuals, decisions, rules, and other written material that provide compliance related information.

This year's list has been published in the August 3 Issue of the Pennsylvania Bulletin. A disclaimer was issued with the lists, acknowledging that "...due to the breadth and changing nature of these documents, we cannot guarantee absolute accuracy."

These lists of documents should help agencies check their own policies and procedures against the state's list of documented requirements and "guidance."
