The OSU System of administrative manuals is maintained by the Web Communications Editor in the Office of Human Resources. The administrative manuals are currently being revised to conform to the requirements of the Policy & Procedure Manual Management (PPMM) Program. The online manuals replace the earlier paper editions, which are no longer produced. In accordance with Oregon public records laws and requirements, printouts of the manuals' online text serves as the official record and are available for inspection at University Archives. To access earlier versions of a manual, please send an email request to University Archives at firstname.lastname@example.org stating the manual name, policy number (or policy name if not numbered), and posting date(s) desired.
The Web Communications Editor posts and maintains policies and procedures that are provided by department and units. The Web Communications Editor is also responsible for designing the layout and navigational aspects of online policies and procedures to provide an efficient user experience.
Please use the latest versions of Firefox or Internet Explorer when viewing the online manuals. Some manuals still use a PDF format for some files. In order to view or print a PDF document, you need a copy of Adobe Acrobat Reader, which is available at no charge on the Adobe website.
