AUDIT COMMITTEE (AUDCOM) BASELINE OPERATING PROCEDURES
Please note: The term Sponsor has been changed to Standards Committee. Any P&Ps that were previously accepted with the term Sponsor can leave the terminology in place. Any P&Ps that are submitted during this transition period before the AudCom baseline documents are updated can either leave the word Sponsor as it is currently in the baseline documents or use the term Standards Committee.
Baseline Procedures - Standards Committee and SCC Type 2
The IEEE SA Standards Board has approved the baseline policies and procedures (P&P) listed below for Standards Committee and SCC Type 2. [Revised - December 2017]. Use of these documents as the baseline for drafting P&P is mandatory. Please review the instructional text that accompanies each baseline document before beginning the drafting process.

Baseline Procedures - Working Groups (WG)
Standards Committees are expected to ensure that their Working Groups (WG) have Policies and Procedures (P&P) and that the WG P&P conform to the IEEE SA Standards Board approved baseline document. When a Standards Committee P&P is initially accepted by the IEEE SA Standards Board, and when that Standards Committee P&P is revised, reviewed and accepted every five years, a review of that Standards Committee's WG P&P will follow. AudCom also reserves the right for random WG P&P review.
Use of these documents [Revised - December 2017] as the baseline for drafting P&P is mandatory. Please review the instructional text that accompanies each baseline document before beginning the drafting process.
For Individual Working Groups
The Simplified Working Group - Individual P&P Baseline is a version of the Working Group Baseline P&P - Individual, but with all options already pre-selected. Using this option enables a newly established WG to immediately adopt the simplified WG P&P and submit it to the Standards Committee for approval consideration. The document may then continue to be used as the WG's P&Ps, or the WG can use the document on a temporary basis until it develops updated P&Ps based on the AudCom WG P&P Baseline - Individual.
