Abstract

There seems to be a mystique attached to policy that is totally unjustified. In fact, a policy could simply be a desired end state, for example, ‘Our policy is that, in 2015, we want the situation in this Department to be positioned to…’. Alternatively, a policy could be a statement of intent. ‘We do not have sufficient to gravel to maintain our shoulders. It is our policy, therefore, to provide all roads with surfaced shoulders’. Finally, a policy could simply be a statement of preferences: ‘All our roads are going to have a design speed of 120 km/h’.
