Policy Approval Process

The IHOP Policy approval process is managed by the Office of Institutional Compliance (OIC). New and substantively revised policies must be submitted to the OIC to begin the review process. Once the policy is submitted to the OIC, review of the policy will be overseen by the OIC. The OIC will submit the policy for review and approval by the Department of Legal Affairs, any relevant stakeholders and committees, the Responsible Vice President, the President of UTMB, and the University of Texas System. The policy will also be posted for UTMB wide open comment for 14 days. The OIC will communicate revisions and comments received during the open comment period with the policy owner for review.

If you have any questions regarding the IHOP Process, please call Nicole Aquino at x78710.
