As the UH Policies and Procedures World Turns �
An Additional Initial Review Cycle: Helping SAMs and MAPPs With Feedback Before the Campus Review Cycle

Starting in Quarter 3, 2011 (April/May 2011), there will be an extra initial review cycle for System Administrative Memoranda (SAMs) and Manual of Administrative Policies and Procedures (MAPPs). This additional review cycle will take place after the Subject Matter Expert (SME) has delivered a document to University Policies and Procedures for the quarterly review process.

Dr. Carl Carlucci, Executive Vice Chancellor and Executive Vice President for the Division of Administration and Finance, will review the quarterly submitted SAMs and MAPPs for up to ten (10) working days before Campus Review, and he will provide any additional feedback to the SME before these documents go through the Campus Review cycle.

This additional review cycle ensures that any needed changes for SAMs and MAPPs will be incorporated before Campus Review, making all documentation more accurate and complete for future reviewers. The extra initial review cycle is currently a pilot program for Quarter 3, 2011, but we hope will become a review process fixture in the future.
Stay tuned for more updates! We are changing for the better!
