Description

The checklist is a companion piece to the SLT Policy Development Template and serves both as a self-assessment tool to assist privacy policy authors, project teams, and agency administrators in evaluating whether the provisions contained within their draft policy have met the core concepts recommended in the SLT Policy Development Template and as a useful resource for use during the annual policy review. The checklist is structured according to policy provision categories. These include key concepts such as:

  • Policy applicability and legal compliance
  • Governance and oversight
  • Acquiring and receiving information
  • Information quality assurance
  • Sharing and dissemination
  • Redress Security safeguards
  • Information retention and destruction
  • Accountability and enforcement

Section references are also provided to correlate checklist components with those in the SLT Policy Development Template.
