Policy Tools and Development
University policies under the Division of Finance and Operations are owned by a Responsible Office. Representatives of these offices work closely with the Policy Office to draft, consult stakeholders, present for approval, promulgate and maintain their policies.
A formal process is followed when creating Division policy.
Policy Development Process
- Formulation and Issuance of University Policies and Procedures (1.1)
- The first step in policy development, the impact statement is a brief document that proposes a new policy. The document describes the background, justification, and the likely impact of the new policy. It is presented to the President's Cabinet for endorsement.
- A standard format used to facilitate consistency, clarity and conciseness across all policy documents.
Policy Revision Form
- A brief document that proposes revisions to an existing policy or procedure. The document identifies the type of change, the affected policy section(s) and the impact it will have on the University.

Stakeholder Letter Template
- Template used when the Editorial Group, Responsible Office or Policy Office invites comments on the draft policy in relation to its likely impact on members of the University community.
In the development process, policies receive rigorous review by one or both standing committees: President's Cabinet and Policy Advisory Group.
President's Cabinet, comprised of University executives, meets semi-monthly and applies an institutional perspective to reviewing/endorsing policies.
