A summary of recent changes to several college policies:
- Recommendation is to eliminate as no longer necessary
- We have separate guidance around HIPPA that did not exist when the policy was first drafted
- Most of this policy is covered in the more current IT Policy 15.1 regarding Personally Identifiable Information
11.12 Budget Adoption: Eliminate
- Recommendation is to eliminate as this is not necessary as a college policy. We do not hold people accountable for “violations”
- Budget adoption is covered by State law. The internal processes to meet state requirements may vary from year to year.
- The policy will be converted to a work instruction for reference by finance personnel.
11.21 Enterprise Print Management: Eliminate
- Eliminate and replace with departmental guidelines
- The policy provides guidance to staff using enterprise print management services, but we do not hold people accountable for “violations”
- Enterprise Print Management services change and require frequent updates. Guidelines are more appropriate to suit the purpose of the EPM system than a GRCC policy.
3.2 Non Discrimination on the Basis of Disability: New 3-2_non-discrimination_on_basis_of_disability
- Robust policy statement detailing GRCC’s commitment to nondiscrimination in all programs, services or activities offered by the college including employment opportunities.
- Clear statement prohibiting retaliation against individuals who file complaints against the institution, exercise their rights under the ADA or Section 504 or participate in an investigation.
- Includes definitions for Complaint, Disability, Major Life Activity, Essential Abilities and Technical Standards, Essential & Marginal Functions and Qualified Individual with a Disability.
- Includes Procedures for Accommodation (Student/Faculty & Staff) and Complaints (Student/Faculty & Staff)
- Links to applicable policies and forms
11.8 Investment Policy: Revised 11-8_investment
- Eliminated requirement for written approval from the Vice President of Finance and Administration for other wire activity in excess of $4,000,000.
