Administrative Procedures

Administrative Procedures accompanying ARP 1.10, provides a flow diagram to guide the proposal sponsor through the steps, submission, and supporting documentation requirements along with the vetting process for a proposed policy action (new, revision, repeal). This set of admininstrative procedures answers questions such as: who can initiate and submit a proposed policy action; when and why a proposed action should be considered; what type of policy actions can or should be submitted; where to start the process; how to submit a proposed policy action. 

A policy’s cycle begins with identification of the issue(s) a new policy or revision to policy will address and recommended solutions.  The issues and recommended solutions formulate the concepts and content used by the university policy administrator in drafting proposed new or revision to policy. Each submission is reviewed, the proposed concept(s) evaluated, and proposed policy action approved or denied for processing by the Policy Steering Committee.  If approved, the university policy administrator drafts the proposed policy revision in collaboration with the responsible administrator and university general counsel office.  Stakeholders are identified for inclusion in the vetting process, for proposed policy drafts with significant impact. In consideration of feedback, a final proposed policy draft is prepared by the university policy administrator in coordination with the reponsible administrator and university general counsel office.  The Policy Steering Committee reviews and informed recommendation is transmitted to the President for action.

Responsible Administrators are charged with implementation, training, ongoing administration and timely cyclic review.
