USDA Guidance Portal

Guidance documents come in a variety of formats, including interpretive memoranda, policy statements, manuals, bulletins, advisories, and more. Generally speaking, guidance documents lack the force and effect of law, unless expressly authorized by statute or incorporated into a contract. This guidance portal provides access to the guidance documents of the USDA’s individual agencies.
