Program Manual Dashboard
The Program Manual Audit History page contains all in-progress and completed Program Manuals which have been published as PDFs and provides a full audit history of the Program Manual that was in existence at any particular point in time.
Create the Program Manual from a template
Creating a new Program Manual is quick and easy. This can be created in one of 3 ways:
- From a previous version of the Program Manual
- From the default Program Manual template
- From a Blank Document
The Program Manual template is a pre-built document with all of the sections that are typically found within a Program Manual and comes with detailed guidance and advice about the things that need to be considered for every requirement which can then be tailored by the organisation to suit.
The Program Manual provides a structured approach to drafting this document and for ensuring appropriate levels of thought are given to the development of this important cornerstone towards compliance.
Document Approvers and Related Documents
This section of the Program Manual creation process is to define the document reviewers and approvers, as well as, linking in any related documents that should be referenced when reading the Program Manual.
Create and Publish the Program Manual
This is the main screen for the Program Manual and sets out all of the chapter and subchapter headings that are typically found in a Program Manual and contains detailed guidance on the type of content that should be contemplated for each section, which is intended to be used as a starting point for each organisation to review and tailor as appropriate.
The sections of the Program Manual can be re-ordered, deleted or modified and the contents of each section can be reviewed and over-written, saving you time and money.
Once the Program Manual has been completed this can be published which creates a PDF version of the Program Manual and stores this in the Program Manual Audit History page.
Document Glossary and Appendices
This section of the Program Manual is for adding a glossary of key terms and definitions and appendices to be read alongside the Program Manual.
In addition, a Jurisdiction Risk table has been added to summarise the Country / Territory Risk Assessment outcomes.
