Each School of Medicine department has liaisons who are responsible for maintaining their own document management system for their department’s policies.
When a new policy has been drafted and approved by a department, the department liaison submits a request for approval to the Policy Manager indicating that a policy has been approved by the department and is ready for publication.
New policy drafts may be submitted to the Policy Manager via email as a Word file or using Sharepoint, Box, an Excel spreadsheet, or in whatever form the liaison prefers.
The Policy Manager edits the policy and either returns it back to the liaison if changes need to be made/approved or, if not, publishes it to the IUSM Policy Portal.
If the policy is a private policy, it is immediately published. If it is a public policy, further approvals are attained first from the legal department before it is published.
