From the Summary: "The White House plays an important role in coordinating the activities of departments and agencies, particularly with respect to policy development. But it is also important to ensure the integrity of government decision making and public confidence that decisions by government officials are made based on appropriate considerations. Balancing these interests and the President's constitutional obligation to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, the White House has adopted a policy of imposing and abiding by certain important restrictions on communications between White House staff and departments and agencies. This memorandum sets forth the restrictions that apply to your contact with Executive Branch departments and agencies outside of the Executive Office of the President ('EOP')."
