The Office of Policy and Tax Compliance oversees Radford University's university-wide policy management program. In support of this mission, the office manages the policy lifecycle, coordinates the communication of new policies to the University community, and maintains the University's policy website which serves as the central repository for all University Policies.
The office coordinates all reviews of University Policies to include, where necessary, the Office of Audit and Advisory Services and the Office of the Attorney General. If revisions are necessary, the office returns the policy to the Division Head for appropriate action.
Upon completion of necessary reviews, the office assigns new policies a classification and policy number and coordinates with the Division Head the submission of the policy to the President's Cabinet for approval.
A policy is a statement of management philosophy and general rule, established to provide direction and assistance to the Radford University community in the conduct of University affairs.
A procedure is a statement that outlines specific actions to be taken to conform to established policies, allowing for the orderly implementation of those policies.
