Standard Operating Procedures and Recommendations

DELTA Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) facilitate day-to-day business operations and are distinguished from NC State Policies, Regulations and Rules (PRRs) because they do not directly or substantially affect procedural or substantive rights or duties. SOPs must not conflict with PRRs. The DELTA SOP procedures should not be used to submit PRRs.

NC State Policies, Regulations and Rules (PRRs) are posted at policies.ncsu.edu.

Definitions for what constitutes a policy, regulation and rule can be found at policies.ncsu.edu/page/definitions.

Procedures that meet the criteria for PRRs should be submitted in accordance with REG01.25.05
policies.ncsu.edu/regulation/reg-01-25-05.

External SOPs
