Policy and Procedure Document. In this writing project, you will draft a policy and procedure document for a hypothetical company. Therefore, the document should involve some aspect of business or internal operations. Hence make sure you choose a topic that can be covered in a single document. You don’t want to take on a long, complex process. However, the process must be involve-d enough to require several pages of explanation, including illustrations. Also your document should be about five single-space-d pages.
Use the University of Missouri policy manual we discussed in class as a general model. (https://www.umsystem.edu/ums/policies/finance)
A title, policy number, and revision date on the first page of your document. Secondly, a general statement or overview of the policy and procedures your document covers. A list of defined terms. Also a detailed explanation of the policy and procedures. Provide appropriate background information. Assume the document is for unfamiliar users.
Make sure you cover each step in the process in a logical arrangement. Write in the active voice. Identify persons who are responsible for each action. Think about exceptions to the general rules you are drafting. List any exceptions together with the general rule. Make sure you have identifiable deadlines. Use examples and illustrations (examples, screenshots, etc.). Label your illustrations and reference them in the text.
The quotes should be complete sentences (no more, less) and should be incorporate-d in your essay to illustrate your ideas. Please, cite your sources in a clickable reference list at the end. Also, do not copy without providing proper attribution (quotation marks and in-line citations). Also, write an essay format, not in bullet form, numbering, or another list format. It would be best if you use your own words. Lastly, proofread your work and run it through Grammarly for thorough confirmation.
