As the UH Policies and Procedures World Turns …
Two New Features on the UH Policies and Procedures Web Site

After receiving many suggestions concerning user activities to track procedures as the review and approval processes go forward, two new features have been added to the UH Policies and Procedures web site.

The first enhancement, “Approval Status,” tracks all SAMs and MAPPs as they enter the approval process after the Campus Review and Executive Review cycles are finished. These two sites are updated each day as the status changes on specific documents. There are also links to all revision-tracked documents in the approval stage.

• The current SAM “Approval Status” web site is: http://www.uh.edu/af/universityservices/policies/Approval_Status/sam/Status_114.htm. The template will be updated each quarter. The most current version can always be found on the SAM Updates drop-down menu.

• The current MAPP “Approval Status” web site is: http://www.uh.edu/af/universityservices/policies/Approval_Status/mapp/Status_114.htm. This template will also be updated each quarter. The most current version can always be found on the MAPP Updates drop-down menu.



The second enhancement, “Pending Review,” tracks all SAMs and MAPPs in the redlining/review phase before they enter Campus Review. These lists will be updated as changes occur and documents are received for a review cycle.

• The current SAM “Pending Review” web site is: http://www.uh.edu/af/universityservices/policies/Pending_Review/SAM/PendRev_114.htm. The template will be updated each quarter. The most current version can always be found on the SAM Updates drop-down menu.

• The current MAPP “Pending Review” web site is: http://www.uh.edu/af/universityservices/policies/Pending_Review/MAPP/Pend_Rev_114.htm. This template will also be updated each quarter. The most current version can always be found on the MAPP Updates drop-down menu.

Hopefully, these two enhancements will make the review and approval processes for SAMs and MAPPs easier for users to track. Stay tuned for more updates!
