New systemwide policies, revisions due March 29
All policy review actions to be submitted through the new Policy Administration System (PAS) are due by 5 p.m. Thursday, March 29. This includes new policies, minor and major revisions and rescissions.
The PAS, part of the Working Smarter Initiative, is an integral building block for developing, approving and managing systemwide policies. Its goal is to produce plain language policies that are easily understood and navigated as well as organized in a logical hierarchy and accessible from a single administrative policy website.
If you are a policy owner and have been unable to attend training on this new system, check the University-wide Policy Office (UPO) Policy Toolkit website. This is a great resource where you will find a training webinar on how to use the SharePoint-based PAS system as well as guidelines, templates and worksheets, and frequently asked questions about the system.
Although training sessions were held throughout January, February and March, more sessions will be added if there is adequate demand.
