Your task as a responsible official or designee, is to review each document assigned to you in PowerDMS and make a choice:
- Don’t make any changes because none are needed, and approve your step. This signals the Office of Compliance and Privacy Services that the document can be reaffirmed and posted, and set up for a cyclical review (typically every 3 years). Or,
- Edit the document (using tracked changes) and then approve your step. This signals the Office of Compliance and Privacy Services that you approve the edits you’ve made and are ready for us to involve others, depending on how significant your edits are. You will be involved in those other steps prior to finalizing the document for signature.
