The following manuals are managed by the Office of Procedures, Records, and Forms. See the Summary of Changes made to the format and user experience of manual sections on our new website.
Business Policies and Procedures (BPPM)
The Business Policies and Procedures Manual (BPPM) is intended to guide and assist employees and administrators in the conduct of day-to-day administrative functions of the University.
Topics in the BPPM have a general interest to many or all University departments. The BPPM does not include sections that exclusively describe internal central administration procedures or procedures that impact only one or two University units.
The BPPM contains instructions for completing forms and provides detailed procedures for requesting services from University units and external organizations.
Procedures are based upon approved University administrative policies and applicable state and/or federal statutes and regulations. Sections may include both policy and procedural statements.
Safety Policies and Procedures (SPPM)
The WSU Safety Policies and Procedures Manual (SPPM) is the primary publication used by the University administration to distribute safety and health information, directives, policies, and regulations to the University community.
The manual includes subject areas that roughly correspond to University safety and health functions, i.e., accident prevention, accident reporting, accident follow-up, protective equipment, motor vehicle safety, fire safety, environmental health, occupational health, and radiation safety.
