                                   and concurrence of General Instructions.
                           3.1.2   Maintains the list of Controlling Organizations which have authority to issue General
                                   Instructions and Supplements for specified functions. This list is in Supplement 0.001-1.
                           3.1.3   Determines whether a proposed document meets the criteria for being designated as a
                                   General Instruction. O&IE assigns a General Instruction Number accordingly.
                           3.1.4   Maintains up-to-date listing for General Instructions by number and title.
                           3.1.5   Establishes the timing and procedures for Controlling Organizations' reviews of General
                                   Instructions. The next reviews will be conducted by all Controlling Organizations on
                                   all General Instructions during the first quarter of the year 2001.
                           3.1.6   Maintains General Instructions in electronic file format and gives instructions for user
                                   access and printing.
                           3.1.7   Reviews General Instructions and Supplements for proper format, appropriateness of the
                                   subject to the controlling organization, concurring signatures of concerned organizations
                                   and approval signature of controlling organization.

     *                     3.1.8   Edits the General Instructions (per Controlling Organization's request) for changes that
                                   O&IE finds to be minor and reasonable. Controlling Organizations are encouraged to
                                   update and clarify their General Instructions. All changes to Supplements are considered
                                   as minor revisions.
                           3.1.9   Requires reapprovals and reconcurrences of the General Instructions where O&IE finds

                                   necessary to avoid creating procedures or other obligations for another organization
                                   without its consent.

                  1.1      The Organization & Industrial Engineering Department

                           Designates an organization as Controlling Organization for a function. Only the Controlling
                           Organization for a function may issue Instructions on that function.

                  1.2      The Organization & Industrial Engineering Department

                           Assigns General Instruction Numbers to Controlling Organizations for each proposed General
                           Instruction document.

                  1.3      Each Controlling Organization

                           Requests that O&IE assign a General Instruction Number for each proposed General Instruction.

         2.0      RESERVED NUMBER BLOCKS:
                  The number block 2 through 4 is reserved for various General Instructions not associated with any
                  single function or Controlling Organization. They may also be General Instructions of general interest
                  issued over the signature of one or more members of Executive Management. Organization and
                  Industrial Engineering Department assigns the specific number for such General Instructions upon
                  request.

          3.2 Paragraph Headings

                           Paragraph headings must be used for all major paragraphs. They may also be used for sub-
                           paragraphs for ease in reference.
                           3.2.1     Major Paragraph Headings are typed in capitals, are bold face and are followed by a
                                     colon.
                           3.2.2     Sub-Paragraph Headings are the titles of the sub-paragraphs. These headings are typed
                                     in Title Case as in paragraph 3.2.
                           3.2.3     A "CONTENT" Paragraph, followed by a colon, is the first statement in the text of every
                                     Instruction and Supplement. It briefly states the purpose of the document and identifies
                                     the major paragraphs. It is not numbered. Sub-Paragraphs may be listed if they will be
                                     of particular interest to the readers or if the instructions are so lengthy that further
                                     indexing is necessary.

                  3.3      Punctuation

                           Punctuation follows the accepted rules of English grammar. In addition:

                           3.3.1     Use bold face type for all major paragraph headings.
                           3.3.2     Capitalize all letters in major paragraph headings. The main words in sub paragraph
                                     headings should be in Title Case format. For emphasis in the text, capitalize the entire
                                     word. DO NOT underline it.
                           3.3.3     Colons follow all major paragraph headings in the paragraph enumeration, as shown in
                                     this Supplement.

                  3.4      Spacing

                           Spacing should be as follows:

                           Major paragraph numbers will be flush with the left-hand margin. Sub-paragraph numbers must
                           line up with the text of the preceding paragraph. The proper paragraph numbering and spacing
                           techniques are shown in this Supplement.

                  3.5      Margins

                           Margins for typing should be as follows: 1" from the top, 0.5" from the bottom, 1" from the left,
                           0.5" from the right. Align all sub-paragraphs as shown in this Supplement.

                  3.6      Signature Authority

                           The Controlling Organization will retain the signed original and revision of General Instructions.
