The Directives Division shares the ESD Search Engine with all ESD websites. Users can now focus their search by sub-division. Click the respective link if you need your search to focus solely on DoD Issuances, Forms Management, Collections, GAO or Plain Language.
The What's New webpage has been replaced by the Recent Publications page.
The DoD Directives Division website has moved. The old url http://www.dtic.mil/whs/directives/ is no longer viable. The new official location for the DoD Directives Division is http://www.esd.whs.mil/DD/. We are currently experiencing problems with the transition and are working diligently to correct these problems.
If you encounter broken links, please send an email to the Directives Division webmaster.
The new DoD Directives Division websites (DoD Issuances, DoD Forms Management, Plain Language, GAO Affairs and Information Collections Branch) can be found at: http://www.esd.whs.mil/DD/ . The DTIC website should redirect you to our new homepage for the next 90 days. In that timeframe your website administrator should change your websites links from our old DTIC website to the new address.
We are researching how to provide an alternative for the discontinued What's New emails. The Recent Publications webpage is the best way to find recent DoD Issuances and Forms.
DoD Instruction 1400.25 can be found here: http://www.esd.whs.mil/DD/DoD-Issuances/140025/ . The link can be found in the top navigation, under the "Issuances" dropdown.
The online training modules are currently offline. We are working to make them available in the near future.
