The purpose of this policy manual is to provide general policy direction to users regarding administrative functions which are common to most, if not all, County Departments. This manual provides a central location for regularly used policies of countywide significance issued by either the Board of Supervisors or the County Administrator. It aims to improve organizational communication, reduce risk and exposure to liability, and provide internal controls. This preface defines administrative policy, establishes the criteria to be met to create a new policy, describes how to change or edit a policy, delineates steps to take to add a policy, and establishes the responsibilities of the County Administrator and department heads.
