Policy Development

-

Understand

Policies for the framework from which uniformed decisions can be made across an agency.

The Department of Enterprise Services has developed model policy templates that are well written and easy to understand. With these policies you will be able to establish clear guidelines for your employees to follow.

Take Action

  1. Determine policies to be developed and set priorities.
  2. Prepare initial draft of policy, updating the agency information in the draft.
  3. Have your Management Team meet to review, discuss, and suggest edits.
  4. If any edits are made, please send the draft to your Labor Relations Section Staff for their approval.
  5. If your agency has represented employees, please refer to their Collective Bargaining Agreement for instruction on their notification process and timeframe.
  6. Once your Labor Relations Section Staff member and the union (if applicable) have approved the draft, the Agency Director should sign and approve it.
  7. Forward a copy to Labor Relations Section Staff member and your Human Resources Business Partner.
  8. Communicate the new policy to your staff.
