Human Resources - Evaluation and Research - Policy and Procedures Manual

Identifier: 080-02-003

Scope and Contents

Each Agency of the State Government prepares a procedures manual annually. These manuals formalize the policies, lines of authority, responsibilities and duties of each sub-agency and other operating mechanisms so as to assure an optimum guidance of their personnel as they perform their duties on a daily basis. These manuals were distributed to, and maintained by, ail organizational units of the Agency. On June 21, 1972 the Director of the Department of Human Resources initiated the development of a Departmental Policy Manual to be used temporarily to give guidance to all personnel of the Department in the performance of their daily duties. This policy manual would be used only until the Administrative procedures manual, which would describe in more extensive detail the methods to be employed in accomplishing any one particular task, could be compiled within the next few months. Preparation and distribution of policy statements were administered by the office of evaluation and research and signed by the Commissioner. The statements were issued periodically covering specific policy matters. They were indexed and numbered in accordance with a predetermined listing of topics and arranged by sections. The sections are as follows: (1) General Administration Planning; (2) Budget Administration; (3) Internal Control; (4) Personnel, Administration; (5) Relationships with the Public, other organizations, other Agencies. These Manuals are unpublished. Researchers using the manuals should consult the Georgia Health Code and Georgia Health Department Rules and Regulations.
