Once a policy is approved, the Secretariat assistant announces the new or revised policy to the UFV community. However, if there are significant changes that people need to be aware of, it is a good idea to write up an announcement that alerts people to these issues.
Implementation dates are not usually part of the policy approval. The implementation date should always be discussed with the departments that administer the policy to ensure a successful launch of the new/revised policy. If policy changes require calendar updates, it may be necessary to ensure that these are made.
