Department Policies and Procedures Manual Template


The University's Internal Audit Committee and Compliance Executive Committee have developed and approved a Departmental Policies and Procedures Manual Template intended to provide information regarding the location of the University's Policies and Procedures and to assist you in documenting how your department ensures compliance with those policies and procedures. A Manual specific to each department will also provide guidance to employees by including information on who handles certain items within a department and who may be called for assistance. Once developed within your unit(s), the Manual(s) will serve as an important reference document to help provide consistency in your unit(s) in the event of employee absence or staff turnover.

The Manual template is available for your review by clicking on the buttons above, Cover Sheet, Part I and Part II. You may download the template to assist you in developing the Manual(s) for your units(s).

If your department already has a Manual, please review the attached document to ensure that your manual includes all of the required information. Please use the section entitled "Other Issues/Areas Pertinent to the Department" for those items specific to your particular unit(s).
