Department of the Army’s policy is to make information promptly available to Members and Committees of Congress and their staffs. This policy is limited only by pertinent regulations and directives relating to security and protection of individual privacy and to official information that requires protection in the public interest. This handbook does not replace AR 1-20, “Legislative Liaison,” or Department of the Army SOP, “Congressional Actions Responsibilities.” It is simply intended as a guide for Congressional Inquiries. The AR and SOP shall take precedence if information in this handbook conflicts with them.
