Of Note


Handbook of Operating Procedures is on Web

The Health Science Center's Handbook of Operating Procedures has gone paperless. Information from the handbook, including travel operating procedures, can now be found on the Web at The institutional compliance office will no longer print hard copies of the handbook. However, the handbook or any individual policy can be printed directly from the Web site.

The Board of Regents' Rules and Regulations, business procedures memoranda and other departmental-specific manuals containing policies and procedures also can be found on the Web at In addition, the records retention schedule can be found and printed at

Each policy is assigned to a Health Science Center policy representative who is responsible for updating, adding and interpreting the policy.

Changes or additions to any policy in the handbook must be submitted first to that policy's representative for executive approval and then to the institutional compliance office.
