Federal Agency Policy and Procedures


Federal Agency Policy and Procedures is intended to provide supervisors and managers with an overview of the environmental factors affecting agency policy, types of agency policy, the agency policy cycle, and the processes associated with it. Participants learn what they need to know to write, analyze, implement, report, and evaluate agency policy.  

The course begins with a required self-paced online portion (open for four weeks) that introduces the agency policy environment, the agency policy cycle, best practices in policy processes and procedures, and an introduction of the simulation group activity.  A one-week residential session provides a review and analysis of participants’ agency policy processes and a comprehensive simulation where participants learn to apply principles on the skills needed to support agency policy. Both the online and residential portions must be completed to complete the course. 

How will you benefit?

  • Improve your skills in creating, analyzing, implementing, reporting, and evaluating agency policy initiatives
  • Understand the environmental factors affecting agency policy
  • Analyze current policy processes across multiple agencies

 Who should attend?
