A Screening Policy is the set of prerequisites (criteria) that must be met by the Community Contribution or Strategic Social Investment request before it is considered by a Review Committee.
Adding or changing records in the Screening Policy register may be necessary if your company revises its investment strategy or defines a new investment plan (Activities 1 or 2 in the Social Investment Planning Cycle).

Workflow for Screening Policies
After you add a new 'screening policy' record, the system automatically sets the status to active. The active status means that the screening policy is still in use.
If the screening policy is no longer required select ‘deactivate’ below the ‘Workflow’ menu. This will not impact any contributions that have already been screened using this policy. However, when the status is deactivated, you will not be able to make changes to the record or select as a screening policy for any future community contributions.
To reactivate the screening policy, select 'reactivate' below the ‘workflow’ menu, you will now be able to make changes to the record.
