Policy: A policy is strategic. It is a position statement that tells how SAIT intends to operate, its stand on a subject and provides guidelines for decision-making.
Procedure: A procedure is operational. It describes the methods and considerations for implementing policy and directs the conduct of people and the activities of SAIT. Procedure documents are cross-referenced to the appropriate policy documents and may include definitions of terms and sample forms.
All SAIT employees are expected to comply with all institutional policies and procedures, including those that apply to areas outside of their specific division. For example, Human Resources policies and procedures apply institution-wide, as do Administration, Finance, Facilities Management, External Relations, and Health, Safety and Environment policies and procedures.
