The DFPS website has two distinct methods for searching for information.
It is very important to know the differences between the two.
Most people are automatically drawn to the DFPS Website search that is found at the top right of every page. For most people you soon find yourself lost if looking for specific information about DFPS Policies.
For most research projects you are going to want to go to the “Handbook Search” found at the top of the left column menu when in handbooks.
