Staff consultation conducted at the outset of the Professional Services Project identified frustration with our policies, processes, systems and layers of bureaucracy.
In response a Policy Redesign Project was initiated to simplify and streamline Flinders’ entire policy set with a new approach to defining and developing policies and procedures. A new policy framework will help the University ensure consistency and quality in its activities, attain its strategic goals and priorities, promote operational efficiencies, and reduce risks.
Utilising new templates, the Policy Redesign Project will review and improve Flinders’ policies to be values and principles-based, with process and procedures separated from policy. Out-of-date policies will be rescinded.
The Policy Redesign Project is a staged process. This means some policy and procedures documents will look different to others as they are being progressively updated. Some terminology in our existing policies and procedures will also be out of date following the commencement of College operations on 1 July.
If you encounter a reference to a role or organisational body that no longer exists after 1 July, use the Policy and Approvals Translation Guide to assist you in determining the new role applicable for that policy or procedure.
