Templates

 
In December 2015 UNSW Council approved a revised Policy Framework which included new templates for Policies, Procedures, Standards and Guidelines. As a result of issues with the operational competency of the approved templates revised versions are available on this website. These templates are provided subject to final approval. Email policy@unsw.edu.au for advice or to provide feedback.

Policy Template


A Policy Template is available for drafting University-wide Policy:
 
The Policy Template must be used for Policy which requires the approval of the President and Vice-Chancellor in accordance with Section 4.2.2 of the Register of Delegations, or the UNSW Council.
 
The Policy Template cannot be used to create a Policy which is specific to a particular Division, Faculty or School. Local Policy is not permitted under the revised Policy Framework.

Procedure Template

The Procedure Template must be used for Procedures which require the approval of one of the Delegates in accordance with Section 4.2.3 of the Register of Delegations.
 
The Procedure Template may also be used for a Procedure which is specific to a particular Division, Faculty or School. Refer to the Local Documents section of this website for further information.

Standard Template

 
The Standard Template is provided for University-wide Standards.

Guideline Template


The Guideline Template may be used to provide further information for matters which are the subject of Legislation, Policy, Procedure, Standards or a decision by an appropriate delegate.
The Guideline Template may also be used for a Guideline which is specific to a particular Division, Faculty or School. Refer to the Local Documents section of this website for further information.


Approval Cover Sheet Templates

A Policy, Procedure, Standard  or Guideline to be submitted for authorisation must be accompanied by a completed approval cover sheet.

Implementation Plan Template

 
A Implementation Plan should be created to plan and document the post-approval actions that are overseen by an Implementation Officer:
