What are policy documents?

  • Policies are rules or principles that explain statutory, regulatory or organisational requirements.
  • Procedures explain how and when to implement a policy.
  • Guidelines provide more detailed information about how to effectively implement aspects of a policy or procedure.

Policy documents should be considered with reference to relevant Regulations and the University Statutes.

Policy Framework (staff login only )

The University Policy Framework sets out processes for managing and maintaining policy documents, including the development and approval of new policy documents and major amendments to existing policy documents.

This process is outlined in Process for Development and Approval of New Policy Documents and Major Amendments to Existing Policy Documents.

Before developing a new or significantly revised University policy document, a proposal should be set out using the Policy Proposal Form and returned to the University’s Senior Operations Officer.

The University Secretariat maintains a central Policy Register to formally record University policy documents.

Policy Templates (staff login only )

Policy templates ensure consistency across all policy documents and should be used when developing, implementing, maintaining and reviewing policies. View the current Policy, Procedure and Guideline templates.
