Policy and Procedures - A set of policies are principles, rules, and guidelines formulated or adopted by an organization to reach its
long-term goals and typically published in a booklet or other form that is widely accessible. Policies and procedures are designed to
influence and determine all major decisions and actions, and all activities take place within the boundaries set by them. Procedures
are the specific methods employed to express policies in action in day-to-day operations of the organization. Together, policies and
procedures ensure that a point of view held by the governing body of an organization is translated into steps that result in an
outcome compatible with that view. Source:
