A Comprehensive Policy Manual for Administration of Direct Services

Whether the OIB services are provided by in-house staff or are contracted out to other agencies, this sample policy can serve as a guide towards the creation of a similar policy manual for your state. 

Included are references from the Code of Federal Regulations supporting these policies and attention to procedures that ensure the necessary data is captured for reporting on the 7-OB.  The document is available in both PDF and Word.
