Policies & Procedures

Policies can be your best friend, or your worst enemy. When things go off track, it’s great to have guidance documents to put things right. However, there is nothing deadlier than not following established policy – whether institutional, federal, state, or sponsoring agency. Therefore, you want to ensure that what you do in practice is in keeping with policy, and if it doesn’t match up, then something must change.
