Policies Development and Review Rule

24 November 2011

The new Policies Development and Review Rule will come into effect on 1 February 2012. It defines the University's policy framework and how new policies are to be developed in the future.

The rule defines the kinds of documents we will use for policy, and their hierarchy, and specifies a new process for developing policies. It also establishes the Policy Register, which will replace Policy Online and be the only authoritative source of policy documents. You can find out more from the policy website and the rule itself is on Policy Online.

The Policy Management Unit in the Office of General Counsel can provide training or presentations about the new rule, policy drafting and using policy templates. Contact the University Policy Manager, Kerrie Henderson, on 9036 9049.
