Transmittals request action from, or provide policy, program,
training and other information to DHS managers and staff.
Select the column heading for a description of each transmittal type. Select the year to review the list and links to transmittals released that year.
Action Requests (AR) - Action Requests are used to request action by a given deadline. They are time-sensitive and should be read and processed or assigned upon receipt.
Information Memoranda (IM) - Information Memoranda are used to disseminate general information such as client and/or provider notice alerts, conferences or training sessions that do not require a specific action or involve policy. IMs are generally a lower priority than Policy Transmittals or Action Requests.
Policy Transmittals (PT) - Policy transmittals should be considered high priority, and processed immediately. They are used to disseminate new federal, state, and program policies or administrative rules, changes in existing policy or administrative rules, policy clarifications and manual updates.
