Regulations FAQs


How do I find a policy under the new system that I am used to using under the old?

You have multiple options.

  • If you know the number of the policy under the old numbering system, you can click on the link on the right-hand side that says, "View All Policies by Previous Number" which will direct you to a Policy List ordered numerically by the old number.
  • If you don't know the number, just the name of the policy and you used to access it through the Policies and Procedures Manual Table of Contents; you may still access that Table of Contents through the Regulations' homepage by clicking on the link "Previous Table of Contents" which appears in the second full paragraph on that page.
  • You can also browse the Regulations homepage which has a list of all the major sections, now called Parts, with some of the more frequently accessed policies listed by subject under each Part.
  • You can also use the search engine option located in the upper right-hand corner of the page.
  • If you are still having trouble finding the policy you are looking for, you may call (801) 581-3033, or Website Feedback.

What was wrong with the old Policies and Procedures Manual?

The old Policies and Procedures Manual, which has been changed in form only, lacked conformity and created frustration and confusion for its users. Some policies included hyperlinks to cross-referenced policies; other policies included a cross-reference, but no hyperlink. The font differed from policy to policy, as did the general layout of the page. Moreover, many of the policies appeared in sections that were not logical locations for that particular policy, which created difficulty for a user trying to find a policy by using the Table of Contents. In short, the new Regulations Library provides a standardized format that unifies the policies and organizes the policies into the most appropriate and logical locations.
