NOAA Administrative Orders

NOAA Administrative Orders are durable intra-agency directives that remain effective until superseded or canceled by appropriate action. NAOs cover substantive program matters and administrative management policies, procedures, requirements, and responsibilities applicable to two or more organizations. In many instances, NAOs provide NOAA-specific guidance supplementing the administrative policies and procedures issued in the Department Administrative Order (DAO) series. NAOs also may be issued on subjects other than those covered in the DAO series.
