Required Policies and Procedures

Required Policies and Procedures

All agency functions and activities should be aligned with and support the overall agency strategy and this should be reinforced by budget and fiscal policies and procedures. For example, equalizing or balancing payment rates across foster care, guardianship and adoption assistance can help to ensure that permanency decisions for children aren’t being adversely affected by a highly differential rate structure. Another example is in the area of staffing. All position recruitments, while managed out of HR or the departments themselves, should only be approved when their direct impact on agency goals and objectives has been established. Further, during a fiscal cycle, positions may be put on hold or eliminated, and this should again be driven by a procedure that explicitly links the criteria for doing so to the agency’s strategic priorities, such as making cuts in specific areas versus an even percentage cut across all departments and functions.
