Policy & Procedures Tools

Overview

It is essential to have a policy and set of procedures that support the Birth to Six Initiative.  Policies and procedures are a set of documents that describe an organization's policies for operation and the procedures necessary to fulfill the policies.

There are four very basic reasons that necessitate writing policies and procedures:

  • Operational needs — Policies and procedures ensure that fundamental organizational processes are performed in a consistent way that meets the organization's needs.
  • Risk management — Established policies and procedures are a control activity needed to manage risk.
  • Continuous improvement — Procedures can improve processes by implementing a Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) approach by building important internal communication practices.
  • Compliance — Well-defined and documented processes (i.e., procedures, training materials) along with records that demonstrate process capability can demonstrate an effective internal control system compliant with regulations and standards.
