WA DOC Internal Documents & Forms

Here we provide WA DOC forms, memoranda, information documents, and excerpts obtained from public records requests and WA DOC presentations to document areas of systemic concern and to help members of the public navigate this vast bureaucracy. Some documents from outside oversight entities and news coverage are also presented as supplementary documentation. Please note that WA DOC policies, forms, memoranda, and agency goals are constantly being renewed, revised, and superseded. Where known, we provide the year when a specific document was created, but visitors to our website should be mindful that the documents compiled here may not reflect the most updated WA DOC policies, stances, or progress. The department website provides many of its current publications and forms, as well as current policy revisions and WA DOC press releases announcing updated information.
