DOE Orders (O) establish management objectives and requirements and assign responsibilities for DOE Federal employees consistent with policy regulations. Requirements must be unique to DOE and must avoid duplicating information from other directives or any existing legal source. Responsibilities must impact at least two Departmental elements. The requirements identify the results needed in the performance of a job or a subject matter expert area. Details on how to fulfill requirements can be appended or attached as appropriate. Orders may also establish intended requirements for contractors in the form of contractor requirements documents (CRDs).

DOE Guides (G) provide acceptable, but not mandatory, means for complying with requirements of an Order or rule. Guides must not impose requirements but may quote requirements if the sources are adequately cited. Alternate methods may be used if it can be demonstrated that they provide equivalent or better level of performance.
