Policies and Procedures - Office of Victim Services
The Office of Victim Services’ (OVS) Policies and Procedures Manual outlines response protocols for victims who contact OVS for assistance and for the practices, policies, and procedures currently in effect for the administration of Federal and locally-funded grants.
This manual provides a generic overview of the basic requirements for the programmatic and financial operations of grants awarded to the District. This manual is intended as a resource for agency program managers as they develop and implement grant programs. This manual should be used as a supplement to - but not a replacement for - specific directives and requirements issued by grantors.
This manual will be updated continually to reflect changes in official policies and procedures adopted by the Government of the District of Columbia.
