This page is your guide to the governance found in Agency Rules and Standard Administrative Procedures (SAPs).

Rules and SAPs are used to communicate the responsibilities, procedures, and practices that guide the operations of TEES divisions. To understand their significance, Rules and SAPs should be read in conjunction with their related System Policies and Regulations. See the “Related Statutes, Policies, or Requirements” section near the bottom of each Rule and SAP to find the related Policy or Regulation.

The Contact Office noted at the bottom of each Policy, Regulation, Rule, or SAP is your resource for interpreting or applying requirements.
